Development and technical feasibility

The United State Register has been operating since the middle of 2004. The first software for maintenance of the USR was a system, which worked in the mode of “synchronization”, in other words the system transferred accumulated registration data to the central server of the USR via the Internet at the moment, chosen by the user. Since 03.05.2007 the updated software has been put into operation, which as opposed to the previous system, worked in the online mode, i.e. data ran into data base directly at the moment of any action.

Today data exchange with the following government agencies/registers is implemented in the United State Register in accordance with the active legislation:
  • State Fiscal Service of Ukraine;
  • State Statistics Service of Ukraine;
  • Pension Fund of Ukraine;
  • The United State Register of Execution proceedings.

Register has a centralized architecture, designed on the basis of database management of industrial level and applies virtualization technologies and “cloud” computing.
