Abstract

A National ID is called a “Resident ID” in Korea. The system is called the resident registration system because the system is based on a resident’s address where the local government is in charge. This act requires each citizen to register his/her personal information and provides a unique ID number that cannot be changed. Under this act, each household is obligated to register with the local administration and provide moving-in data when it moves to a new house. The National e-Government Development Program was launched to construct an e-RRS from 1992 to early 2000s. However, for the first decade of the program, the e-RRS was used by each organization separately due to the lack of inter-organizational coordination for information sharing. For this reason, it had minimal impact on provision of civil services, despite its goal of ensuring more efficient service provision and reducing the number of administrative processes and the quantity of paperwork necessary for citizens to access civil services and retrieve personal data ranging from passport renewal and birth certificates to change of address forms.
