What you need to know about dactyloscopy and genome registration of citizens Printable versionLast update: 07.12.2022
From January 1, 2024, the Law "On Dactyloscopy and Genome Registration" will be introduced, which stipulates collection, processing and protection of dactyloscopy, genome information.
Its relevance is based primarily on security issues.
Moreover, there are many situations in life (fires and plane crashes with numerous victims in different states, discovery of unidentified corpses, biological traces in the places of unsolved crimes, disappearance of people without a trace) when it is impossible to establish or confirm an identity of a person.
Availability of dactyloscopy and genome information in the relevant databases will make it possible to identify victims, and also reduce the lists of those gone missing and unidentified corpses.
In the article, we will describe the rules for carrying dactyloscopy and genome registration.
Dactyloscopy information involves information about the structural features of papillary patterns of a person's fingers and about his/her personality.
An electronic code of papillary patterns will be recorded to biometric passports and national IDs of citizens of the Republic of Kazakhstan.
A citizen will undergo the procedure when obtaining new, biometric documents, i.e. a national ID (with a chip already installed in it) and a new passport of a citizen of the Republic of Kazakhstan (also with a built-in chip).
