Slovenia joins RISER Consortium
The Slovenian Ministry of Interior and the Slovenian IT solution provider GENIS joined the RISER Consortium in July 2008. By now there are 12 partners from seven EU-Member States deploying the RISER Service as one of the first cross-border eGovernment services in European civil registration.
Slovenia has a central population register which keeps the basic data of the 2.0 Mio. inhabitants. The population register is under control of the Slovenian Ministry of Interior. For the future RISER will handle all cross-border inquiries for the Slovenian population register. RISER increases its coverage on 9 European countries and 128 Mio inhabitants.
Within the eTEN-Programme of the European Commission the RISER Consortium realises a Trans-European eGovernment service for address verification in official state registers. The RISER service is run by the RISER ID Services GmbH inline with all European and national data protection requirements.
