The Office of the Public Registry Administration (OPRA) has oversight and responsibility for the Land Registry, Corporate Registry, Personal Property Registry and Land Surveys Directory. OPRA is responsible for ensuring the integrity of the registries and revising procedures that will have an impact on policy. Registry Officers set new policy for the registries and amend existing polices. They are also responsible for any legislative amendments to be considered by the Government.
Information Services Corporation (ISC) will remain the first point of contact for routine transactions and will act as the service provider for management and operations of the registries. Registry Officers from OPRA provide formal delegation under the various pieces of legislation to the ISC or ISC employees, setting out their authorities while retaining the right to review decisions made at ISC.
