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)

Public Key Infrastructure

The UZI-register complies with the ‘Public Key Infrastructure’ (PKI) standards for government agencies. This is described in the Schedule of Requirements. (www.logius.nl)


The UZI-register is registered with the Independent Post and Telecommunications Authority of the Netherlands (Onafhankelijke Post en Telecommunicatie Autoriteit, OPTA) as an official issuer of qualified certificates to the public. The registration number is 940473. (www.opta.nl)

An independent auditor periodically checks whether the UZI-register still complies with all of the specified standards and norms.
