MIL OSI Translation. Region: Russian Federation –
All documents have been submitted to the federal register. Now they can be requested at any registry office throughout the country.
Employees of the capital’s registry offices digitized all documents registered with the department since 1926 and transferred them to the federal register. More than 500 people were involved in digitization. In parallel with this work, the registry offices performed their main tasks – they received applicants and registered acts of civil status.
Due to the fact that all archival documents are translated into electronic form and stored in a single register, applicants can request them at any registry office throughout the country. Rosstat, the Pension Fund, the Ministry of Internal Affairs and other departments also have access to the acts. In total, more than 27 million archival documents have been digitized. This was stated by the Deputy Mayor of Moscow for Social Development Anastasia Rakova…
“Today the digitization of the entire archival fund of civil status records is being completed. And in Moscow it is the largest in Russia – 27 million records. This fundamentally changes the availability of data for residents. Now you can get services even faster anywhere in our country. There is no need to travel to Moscow to obtain an archival document. This is very important and necessary. And I hope that not only Muscovites, but all residents of the country will feel these changes, ”said the deputy mayor.
She also added that, despite the pandemic, the quality of the registry office services continues to improve.
“I am glad that the registry office is growing, changing and developing in parallel with the whole of Moscow. We always try to comply with the requirements of the residents. We were one of the first to introduce electronic submission of an application to the registry office. This opportunity has already been used by almost half of the spouses this year. I hope that in the future we will only develop these services, make them even more convenient for Muscovites, ”said the Deputy Mayor.
Anastasia Rakova also congratulated the employees of the capital’s registry offices on their professional holiday and the upcoming New Year.
“This year has been extremely difficult for everyone, including the registry office employees. I had to rebuild the work, change the usual approaches to it, change the entire business procedure. But the registry office is one of the few structures that did not stop working even in a pandemic. Yes, solemn registration had to be limited, but marriages continued to be registered on all days, even when other state structures were not working, ”said the deputy mayor.
The professional holiday of employees of the registry office is celebrated on December 18. On this day in 1917, the decree “On civil marriage, on children and on keeping books of acts of state” was signed.
