Architecture

The information system has two sub information systems:
• National Register of Veterinarians, which registers and systematizes veterinarians with a valid professional certificate. The register allows to supervise veterinary practices and collect valid data for statistics.
• National Register of Food and Feed Business Operators. The register allows to collect data about people who are authorized food business operators or who are feed business operators.

Users can log in using an ID card and an ID card reader or bank user name and passwords.
