Enabling online verification of education certificates Enabling online verification of education certificates If a person has fulfilled his/her right to education, it is certified by a respective document issued by an education facility. A person needs this document if s/he is going to continue education and enter another education facility to receive certain specialty, qualification, or to seek job, to get registered with the employment centre, etc. Considering that education certificates are sometimes forged, various institutions, enterprises and organizations need a mechanism to verify their authenticity. Moreover, these certificates should be verified when a person is seeking certain administrative services, or when persons who studied in education facilities located on the temporarily occupied territory of Crimea and non-Government-controlled territories in Donetsk and Luhansk oblasts request duplicates of their education certificates. Nowadays, authenticity of an education certificate can be officially verified by sending a written request to an educational facility, an administrator or a technical administrator of the Unified State Education Electronic Database. The latter considers a request and provides an official response on the authenticity of a certificate or reports that a certificate is missing from the Register of Education Certificates of Unified State Education Electronic Database. Such a verification procedure is time-consuming and thus complex for the citizens. Actions Responsible Timeframe Partners Indicator 1.
