Reniec Enhances ID Card Processing with Acquisition of Identification Kits Using Integrated Biometrics’ Kojak Ten-Print Scanner

The Reniec acquired ‘live capture’ identification kits to automate the process of DNI and registration of statistics of the citizens of the regions of Ayacucho and Apurimac.

SPARTANBURG, S.C., August 9, 2023 Integrated Biometrics (IB), the leading provider of FBI-certified mobile fingerprint scanners, is pleased to announce that the National Registry of Identification and Civil Status (Reniec) in Peru has acquired identification kits, incorporating IB’s Kojak’s fingerprint scanner, to automate the processing of ID cards and registration for the civil registry. This strategic move will provide a more efficient and expedited service to users of agencies, registry offices, and auxiliary registry offices (ORA) in the Ayacucho and Apurímac regions.

The system’s functionality involves the free capture of a citizen’s photograph and signature, then fingerprints of all ten fingers are digitally recorded using IB’s Kojak, the FAP 60, FBI-certified, 10-print scanner. This information is then instantly entered into the Reniec ABIS (automated biometric data identification system), simultaneously authenticating the citizen’s identity and minimizing the risk of impersonation.

The cutting-edge equipment will be deployed across Reniec’s care centers, including Andahuaylas, Huanta, and Huamanga, among other provinces. This new digital registration process is expected to facilitate approximately 6,000 DNI procedures per month, along with 11,000 general procedures, eliminating the need for paper-based printing and scanning.

Juan Carlos Castro, spokesperson for the Reniec Registry Services Directorate, explained, “The implementation of this equipment will revolutionize our operations. The integration of state-of-the-art technology will enable us to efficiently handle registration requests, duplications, renewals, and rectifications of DNI.”

The kits also include a photographic panel, scanner, camera and signature pad.
