Reniec (Registro Nacional de Identificación y Estado Civil) is Peru’s National Registry of Identification and Civil Status in charge of maintaining the civil registry as well as the electoral register.
Reniec is the authority in Peru where Peruvians (including foreign parents with children born in Peru as these are according to Peruvian law Peruvians) have to register the birth of a child. Here Peruvians as well have to register their marriages, divorces, deaths and other events modifying the civil status.
Next to recording these entries responsibilities of Reniec further include, but aren’t restricted to emitting birth, marriage, and deaths certificates as well as verifying the authenticity of signatures on certain Peruvian documents (one step before these can get an Apostille)
And while Reniec additionally is in charge of issuing the DNI, Peruvian passports and Carnés are issued by Migraciones.
