De La Rue launches DLR Identify™ for CRVS (Civil Registration and Vital Statistics)

New solution will help governments to tackle the challenge of citizen identity management at its foundation

London, UK: 25 August 2016: De La Rue, the global provider of secure products and digital solutions, today announces the launch of DLR Identify™ for CRVS. The proposition is built on DLR Identify™, a citizen identity management platform. It will allow governments to record, register and report on vital citizen events including Births, Deaths, Marriages and Divorce. This essential information provides the foundation for effective planning and resource allocation for critical services such as health, education, policing, and social care programmes.

This focus on authentic data falls in line with the United Nations Sustainability Goals, which aims to give every citizen a legal and secure identity by 2030. Figures from organisations including UNICEF and the WHO (United Nations Children's Emergency Fund and World Health Organisation) indicate that the births of over a million children every week go unregistered across the world.

DLR Identify™ for CRVS provides a comprehensive platform for the registration of vital events. With a web-based solution, mobile application and SMS notification service, DLR Identify™ for CRVS captures information across a range of devices to provide a centralised, single and accurate view of data. Combined with a central database, national citizen data can be made available in real time.

The platform’s open architecture and modular design allows each country to customise the solution to its own specific needs, allowing for effective workflow management as well as growth and expansion. Governments have instant access to the data generated, and the insights established to support critical research and decision-making regarding the social and economic development programmes that their countries require. Registering vital event data is a key sign of a government’s commitment to the individual’s right to identity.

Martin Sutherland, CEO, De La Rue
commented “Identity is one of the most important rights in the modern world. As the world’s largest commercial provider of passports and identity documents, we already support over 40 countries around the world with their identity infrastructure. We regard the successful deployment of CRVS as a part of the critical national infrastructure for any country – it provides protection, peace of mind, and freedom for citizens and their governments.

We are fortunate across our entire business to work with over 140 countries around the world, and look forward to the opportunity to support our customers in tackling the critical issue of secure and authentic data as the foundation of identity management.”
