What is a "registry office" and what is its use in Ukraine?

What is a “registry office” and what is its use in Ukraine?

Based on of the Law of Ukraine “On State Registration of Civil Status Acts” [/ mask_link] on the territory of Ukraine launched the State Register of Civil Status Acts – DRACS.

This register should contain the following information:

  • the books of acts of civil status were transferred into electronic form, which cover all the records made in the DRACS;
  • information about acts of civil status committed by Ukrainian citizens outside Ukraine (in foreign countries).

The undoubted benefit of the DRACS will be that citizens will be able to restore the lost primary documents of registration of acts of civil status in any body of the DRACS directly on the day of appeal (since the information will be available and confirmed instantly in a single register).

Moreover, DRACS authorities will be able to protect themselves from fraudsters (for example, from bigamists, or fictitious recipients of maternity capital who register the birth of children in various registry offices).

The fact is that the DRACS system has certain difficulties in its work, since it is still incomplete, but in the near future these errors will be corrected.
