The Population Register Centre (PRC) will introduce its new organisation from the beginning of 2017. The purpose of the organisation update is to support the implementation of the PRC’s new strategy.

The current PRC strategy covers the years 2016 - 2020. Its focal points are customers, digitalisation and courage. The strategy defines the PRC’s mission, values and vision as well as strategic goals and the means for achieving them.

The PRC’s operations are led by Director General Lea Krohns with the support of unit directors and the management team. The units are divided into divisions headed by group managers.

The new organisation consists of the following units: Administration and Joint Services, Population Information Services, Digital Services and ICT Services.

The Administration and Joint Services unit is responsible for operational and financial management, human resources and general services, communications and customer work support.

The Population Information Services unit provides maintenance services and information services and engages in service design related to the Population Information System.
