Only a country's authority has the legal right to ask for information from various registers, to be able to find out if a vehicle is reported stolen or not. Since the Swedish Transport Agency is such an authority, we have the possibility to conduct such research. The registers the Swedish Transport Agency utilizes are the Swedish Police's inquiry system, Interpol, Schengen and EUCARIS (consists of several European countries' traffic registers).

As an authority we also have better possibilities to communicate with other countries' authorities, since they in many cases only answer questions regarding previously registered vehicles asked by another authority.
