About the UZI-register

The Dutch Unieke Zorgverlener Identificatie Register (UZI-register) (Unique Healthcare Provider Identification Register) is an organisation that enables unique identification of healthcare providers and care assessment agencies in electronic traffic.

The UZI-register is responsible for the demand, production and distribution of UZI products. In doing so, the UZI-register fulfils the role of Certification Service Provider (CSP). The UZI-register is a part of the CIBG. The CIBG is an implementing agency of the Ministry of Health, Welfare and Sport (Dutch: Ministerie van Volksgezondheid, Welzijn en Sport, VWS).


The UZI-register is certified by the following parties:


The Electronic Signature Act places requirements on certification service providers. The certification of the UZI-register according to the ‘Framework for Certification of Certification Authorities against ETSI TS 101 456, version 1.4.3’ proves that the UZI-register complies with these requirements.

The UZI-register is certified according to NEN-EN-ISO 9001:2008. (www.nen.nl)
