What registers are

Registers are lists of information. Each register is the most reliable list of its kind. For example, the Foreign and Commonwealth Office’s (FCO’s) country register is the most accurate and up-to-date list of countries available.

The benefits of registers

Using a register will mean you’re only ever working with one reliable and current source of data. You can focus on building your service rather than checking if the data you’re using from other sources is accurate and trustworthy.

Getting started

Registers can also help you if you collect, manage or store data for your organisation. We’ve made it really simple to find out how custodians and the GOV.UK Registers team work together to create a register.
