The National Registration Department (NRD) (known as Jabatan Pendaftaran Negara, JPN in Malay) is a Department under the Ministry of Home Affairs. It is responsible for the registration of important events of each individual such as birth, death, adoption, marriage and divorce. In addition, NRD is also responsible for determining citizenship status and issuing individual identification document in the form of identity card to those who are eligible.

The Identity card for the Federation of Malaya was issued on 2 August 1960. Initially, birth, death, adoption, citizenship and marriages matters were placed under state governments until federal laws were drafted to serve the public with regard to registration matters. The National Registration Department was established to administer the acts for Parliament until today.

The National Registration Department was established after the Emergency (Registration Areas) Regulations 1948 were enforced as one of the measures to contain the security threats. These regulations required all residents to register and obtain an identity card when they attained the age of 12 and above. The Department was also given additional functions of registration all important events such as birth, death, adoption, marriage, divorce and citizenship.

Since its establishment, this Department has shifted to several buildings in Kuala Lumpur and Selangor. Initially, the Headquarters of the National Registration Department was located at Bangunan Sulaiman, Jalan Damansara, Kuala Lumpur. In 1958, it was relocated to the Federal Building in Petaling Jaya to accommodate the increasing records, documents and staff. After several years, it was again relocated to the Selangor State Economic Development Corporation building and it remained there until December 2004 when it was shifted to Precinct 2, Federal Government Administrative Centre, Putrajaya.
