How to search for PEC address: Certified e-mail, or the PEC, is a very useful tool that allows you to communicate not only with companies, but also with professionals, private citizens and public administration bodies, guaranteeing the certainty of the interlocutor’s identity. The PEC also assumes legal value, just as if it were a registered letter with acknowledgment of receipt, thus revealing itself to be an effective and safe means of communication.
The PEC is an economic means (although there are no services that provide it for free, the prices of the most accessible subscriptions are below 10 euros per year) and does not require special knowledge or equipment to be used: for the end user it’s like using a common e-mail service; the important thing is to use PEC addresses both as sender and as recipient. Yes, how do you find the PEC address of a company, a professional or a public administration body? I’ll explain it to you right away.
There are online services that allow you to search public databases (eg that of the Register of Companies) and find the PEC addresses of companies, professionals and entities of the PA in a few clicks. Unfortunately, the situation is a bit more complex as far as private citizens are concerned, but we will talk about this in a bit. Take a few free minutes to understand how to search PEC address thanks to the resources that I will present to you.
How to search for a person’s PEC address
As I announced at the beginning, finding the PEC address of a private individual is a somewhat complex operation. At present, it is not yet possible to carry out the operation through public or government records. I understand your desire to look for an address that you urgently need, but at the moment the only way to obtain the PEC address of a person, who is not a professional or member of a company, is by contacting the person concerned. Maybe through social networks like Facebook or LinkedInor, alternatively, by sending an e-mail to your traditional electronic mailbox to request the PEC address.
However, I want to point out that the situation may change in the future, since the official site of the National Resident Population Registry (often abbreviated to ANPR): it is a national database that favors the digitization of data to improve services to citizens.
Although the data migration is now complete, I must warn you that, at the time of writing, it is not yet possible look for PEC address with fiscal code (unlike what happens for certified e-mails of professionals and companies) and, should this option be available in the future, it would allow to obtain the certified e-mail address only of those who have expressly indicated it as their digital domicile. In any case, I will update the post as soon as there will be news in this regard.
