Data and your rights

Are you concerned that INTERPOL has data on you in our files? Find out how to contact the CCF.

Any person or entity, referred to as an Applicant, has the right to submit a request to the Commission for:

  • access to data processed in INTERPOL’s files;
  • correction and/or deletion of data processed in INTERPOL’s files

These requests are reviewed by the Requests Chamber.

The submission of a request to the Commission is free of any charge.

How to submit a request

To submit a request to the Commission, you must use the application form and follow the instructions in it.

Before applying to the Commission, you must ensure that your request complies with the admissibility requirements.

Your request should be sent by postal mail to the following address:

Commission for the Control of INTERPOL's Files
200 quai Charles de Gaulle
69006 Lyon
France

Additional information or documents may be requested by the Commission after the initial submission. These elements should be provided within the deadline set by the Commission.

Please note that requests for access to INTERPOL's files received by the Organization are passed to the Commission, even if they are not specifically addressed to the Commission.

The Commission only supervises the processing of data in the INTERPOL Information System. It is not, therefore, empowered to lead an investigation, to weigh evidence, or to make a determination on the merits of a case. Only the competent national or regional authorities may do so (Article 36 of INTERPOL’s Constitution).
