The UZI Register (Unique Healthcare Provider Identification Register) (Dutch: Unieke Zorgverlener Identificatie Register) uniquely links the physical identity of healthcare providers to an electronic identity and documents this in a certificate (UZI pass or UZI server certificate). In doing so, the UZI Register fulfils the role of Trusted Service Provider (TSP).

The function of the UZI Register is to issue and manage certificates and key information, including the provided media (UZI products). The UZI Register uses a Public Key Infrastructure (PKI) when certifying products.

Healthcare providers can turn to the UZI Register for registration in the UZI Register. After positive identification and authentication, registration will take place and the following certifications can be requested:

  • Certificates for healthcare providers
  • Certificates for employees, registered in the employee's name
  • Certificates for employees, not registered in the employee's name
  • Certificates for systems, databases and websites

The above-mentioned certificates are placed on the provided media (UZI passes and server certificates).

Certification Practice Statement (CPS)
The Certification Practice Statement (CPS) describes how the UZI Register carries out the service provision and what the rights and obligations are of all those involved. The CPS outlines the processes, procedures and measures for requesting, producing, issuing, managing and certificates. The CPS is the most important document for the certification policy.
