Due to e-government requirements, the Address-BDR-Online is accessed via the portal network, i.e. users can access the application via the user portal in which they are registered. Users are managed in their user portal and are identified and authenticated when they log in.
The access rights to the data of the local Buildings and Dwellings Registers are regulated in § 7 of the BDR Act. The law also regulates the register units and attributes on which access has to be granted for the respective institution.
In addition to the municipalities, the relevant Federal Ministries, the Main Association of Social Insurance Institutions and the Austrian Federal Monuments Office, as well as those federal provinces that have created regulations for the data transfer to the Energy Performance Certificate Database, have access to selected BDR data.
The addresses of dwellings kept in the Buildings and Dwellings Register are transmitted to the Central Register of Residents to ensure that registration processes can only be carried out at valid addresses.
The Address-BDR-Online includes a comprehensive system of rights and roles that regulates the rights of users, such as read and/or write access to data fields or menu items.
