The civil register is used to manage the situation of all the citizens of a nation, providing the means to create certificates of birth, marriage, divorce, death, etc. As such, it plays an important role in the security of a country's institutions, in particular identifying the holders of nationality.
Clearly, identity theft and fraud are sources of social injustice, as the community may inadvertently allocate resources to an ill-intentioned individual who, by adopting the identity of another person, deprives the genuine citizen of his or her legal entitlement.
The first requirement in terms of reliability is therefore to ensure the quality and unicity of records.
