Analysis: What is the status of state electronic registers in Ukraine?


What is the status of state electronic registers in Ukraine? To find out, BRDO experts developed “Analysis of the current status of state electronic registers and assessment of potential corruption risks” together with the team of the Ministry of Digital Transformation of Ukraine and the USAID/UK aid TAPAS Project/ Transparency and Accountability in Public Administration and Services.

The study was primarily focused on the 10 most popular registers for the provision of services, including the Unified State Demographic Register (USDR), the State Register of Property Rights to Real Estate (SRPR), the State Register of Civil Status Acts (SRCSA) and others. During the study, we conducted a survey among respondents related to these registers, as well as analyzed processes of entering data into the registers, their structure, interoperability between them, and possible schemes of illegal actions.

Finally, we have identified a large number of issues that need to be addressed, including:

  • insecure access to registers that facilitates illegal schemes for fraudsters;
  • a lack of interaction between registers, due to which, for example, “non-existent persons” receive social payments;
  • a lack of a single standard for maintaining information resources — the adoption of draft law #2110 “On Public Electronic Registers” will solve this problem.
