Disciplinary and criminal proceedings transitional provisions preamble i. among the services that the Church has paid over the centuries in the civil society of our country, the maintenance of demographic records is not the least important. Certainly, the original reason of parish books was not civil but canonical, although canonical law coincided with the civil, or rather there was confusion. In a society like ours, in which, so far, the quality of citizen identified totally with that of a member of the Church, the facts of the civil status of persons correspond almost exactly with the facts that the Council of Trent in 1563, he prescribed that had to be registered.

Every important fact of the person's life-birth, marriage, death-is the installation of a sacrament or the celebration of a rite. Canonical rules applied by the presiding ecclesiastical parishes, have had and have to present an application and a result in the field strictly civil.

But, on the one hand, the demographic development of the country and, on the other hand, the technical and legal developments make it necessary to create the Civil Register.

The ecclesiastical records continue to baptisms and, consequently, births, and marriages and deaths, but the facts and the acts of civil status of people who live in the country and who are not baptized, who is not married canonically and not receive the religious memorial service cannot be registered legally as the canonical record has not been designed for them.

Numerous acts of civil status are not regulated by Canon law, and many people are not subject to the canonical authority. These two reasons as would be sufficient by themselves to justify the creation of a Civil Register in Andorra, as has been the case in other countries of the Christian West.

But the enactment of the Constitution, and in particular articles 5, 6, 11 and 13, necessarily obliged to establish a Civil Registry.

The ecclesiastical authority, completely autonomous in its sphere, as Rector of the perfect society, that is the Church, will be the only responsible for the register of deeds, acts and rites that Canon law prescribes including matrimony, the validity of which recognizes the Constitution. In the Civil Register will be subjected to all the events and facts that concern him the person and their life in society, regardless of the fact that professin or not a religion (civil condition of the people in the sense of article 13.1 of the Constitution).

However the principle established in the previous point, the facts of the civil State prior to the entry into force of this law, that are registered in the ecclesiastical records, will be able to continue being certified by the rectors-since the new system cannot make ecclesiastical records disappear, nor diminish its effectiveness-concurrently with the certification authority that will take the Civil Registry for this record from the ecclesiastical records transcribed in acts.

II. The present law does not have the substantive civil law-which refers to, nor seeks to fill any gaps that the said right may present, saved the necessary civil rules specifying force.

With the exception of certain specific provisions, this law deals not to establish any rules of private international law, sphere of law of importance from the fact that the majority of the inhabitants of Andorra are foreigners and are governed, accordingly, to their personal law.

The rules contained in the present text have assumed, all of them, the term of the current law, but as they are not in the future be supported any substantive variation may affect our right, both the civil law and the internal rules of private international law.

However, we must highlight that the Record rules affect other substantive law full URparcel.les, especially with regard to the constitutional character of certain registrations.

III. When to create again a civil registry, there are several technical options and practices that offered in the legislature. Among all has been chosen as a model of general register only for all the country attached to the central administration.

The small size of the country, both in area and in population, has ruled out the creation of a Civil Registry for each of the seven parishes. The numerical weakness of the acts discourages the creation of as many records as parishes, not only because of the difficulty of structuring, for each one, a personal body ready and available, and so cost-prohibitive of such a structure, but to the multiplication of the interrelationships that would provide seven records and the crossing of information and of settlements that are produced.

A general register only will prevent the necessary correlation that should be secure among the seven


Parish records, and at the same time will unify the criteria at the time of the application.

On the other hand, there was the choice between trust responsibility of the record in the judicial sphere (example of Spain) or in the sphere of the Administration (example of France). The solution adopted is that of the central administration with judicial control.

IV. The organization of the registry and of the internal work are presented with a double aspect. On the one hand, a Civil Registry is fundamentally based on the books and in the preservation of documents; Unable to release a record of the constraints of the paper and of the file, since there are almost specific. But, on the other hand, has wanted to introduce information technology to relieve the mechanical work and conferred the necessary security.

Privacy must be respected in all matters of civil status makes the computer option is moderate and, above all, that access to information may not be in any way facilitated by the interconnection of systems.

In this field, all caution is little expensive it is important the legal right that you must preserve.

V. the Civil Registry is part of the system of public faith in what the registration publicity is the primary purpose. However, it should not be forgotten that the activity of the registry will be a byproduct of great worth and statistical interest and that, in addition, you will have all the guarantees of accuracy and certainty.

The statistics, which will have to be necessarily combined with the protection of privacy, will be of extreme usefulness for the work of the Administration since the knowledge of the parameters of the life in society will give rise to the adoption of legislative, administrative and economic measures with more knowledge of the facts.

Vi. The interest of the Civil Registry is to have as much information as possible. To this end, the terms are planned with amplitude. It has not sanctioned the lack of submission to the registry and, generally speaking, has been easily the most that can be administered, even if it is extemporàniament, go to the register to declare everything you are interested in laying. In order to make the statements is set as a general rule of allowance of the claims, the inscriptions and annotations of all the acts of statement and appearance, and only establishes the payment for the issuance of certificates and certain benefits.

VII. registration and judicial procedures have been simplified as far as possible. In accordance with article 89.4 of the qualified law of Justice has ensured the intervention of the public prosecutor's Office in all the processes of the Civil Registry.

VIII. This law must be completed by a regulation-what because it gives the Government mandate-that contains the development of certain legal norms and certain technical aspects.
