VIPER stands for Vision Impaired Persons Electronic Register. The VIPER database was set up over 12 years ago with the sole purpose of distributing Government information, such as Referendum information booklets to NCBI clients in accessible formats.
We are not able to use the our database system to send Government information as our service users need to opt into VIPER. VIPER is not used for marketing or selling purposes and the database is not shared with any other party. The purpose of VIPER is specifically to communicate government information in accessible formats to those that wish to receive that information.
