The territorial units of the division of the country for the purpose of the records are:

  • registration unit - the area of ​​land within the administrative boundaries of the municipality, and if the municipality includes a city with the status of a city also within the administrative boundaries of the city. In cities where districts are established, as an auxiliary unit of a municipality, a unit of account may be the area of ​​one or more districts. The unit of account is divided into register areas.
  • registration area - area of ​​land located within the boundaries of rural and urban areas or in cities within the limits of districts, urban areas or complexes or areas defined by natural boundaries defined by waterways, streets, railway lines and other physiographic objects.
