The Business and Property Registration Agency (BPRA) is the one of the oldest Government offices which is mandated with the registration and issuance of Certificates of vital events - Births, Deaths, Marriages and Divorces, and Adoption, (Births and Deaths Registration Act No. 10 of 2006 and Marriage (Solemnization) Decree Cap. 92 and Marriage and Divorce Decree Cap. 91), also the registration of commercial/business entities as well as property registrations.The need for BPRA to handle registration activities (to low administrative areas), the need for dual structure to coordinate different agencies with common interest in civil registration.
Before the establishment of the "Wakf and Trust Commission" in 1985, the Registrar General was also the Administrator General of the Wakf and Trust properties.Since then, the Registrar General has become the "Administrator General of Non Muslim Estate" Apart from the registration activities, the Registrar General has also legal duty to maintain registers, index books; data and records on registrations effected by the Business and Property Registration Agency and has thus become a legal custodian of all information and data on all the above registrations
