How can radio frequency identification be used for the maintenance of civil registry documents?

—Name withheld


I have not heard of RFID being employed in civil registration, or for the maintenance of documents in a civil registry. That said, the technology is being utilized more and more to track boxes of documents, and to authenticate documents. It would certainly make sense for government agencies that need to manage vital documents to consider using radio frequency identification.

If any readers are aware of RFID being utilized in this way, please post information below. In the meantime, here are some relevant articles on using the technology for tracking documents:
