What is a second register?

A register which is either: (1) established within a State under separate legislation from that governing the State’s national register (as in the case of the NIS and DIS registers of Norway and Denmark respectively); or (2) established under the legislation of an offshore territory having legal links to the parent country (e. g. the Isle of Man register, which is linked to the UK, the Madeira register, which is linked to Portugal, and the Canary Islands register, which is linked to Spain).
