Dubai Data’s Primary Registry is the trusted source of high-value reference data of use to multiple organizations. It is a cohesive set of data assets that provide trusted, timely, and secure information to support government or business processes.

It is a reliable and accurate information resource that acts as the source record for the data which it contains. A Primary Registry represents the building blocks of data for the subsequent use by others, on which the validity of other data (e.g. transaction) depends. For instance, data that represents visa information and customer identity must be present before the transaction is created to provide an telephone connection or electricity connection.
For data users, the Dubai Data Primary Registry provides high quality data for use by all data user communities.

For data providers, the Primary Registry facilitates the needed confidence in the quality and authenticity of the data and minimizes risks.

evaluated according to the following attributes:

  • Accuracy
