The Central Register of personnel has its origin in article 12 of decree no. 315/1964, of 7 february, which approves the law articulated Civilian Staff of the state.

Subsequently, the law 30/1984 of 2 august, of measures for civil service reform, mentioned in its article 13 that all the administrations should have personal records coordination between them, and in particular, a Central register to fit all staff in the service of state administration. Also article 18 of the law 53/1984 of 26 december, the staff of the service of the Public Authorities mentioned the obligation to record in the records for the resolutions of support for a second post play or activity in the public sector or the exercise of private activities.

In its early days the personnel management was conducted mostly on paper, which is why during the 1980s were delegated offices of the Central register of personnel in those ministries and agencies where their presence is deemed appropriate. These were composed of staff of pmscs operating on the mandate of the RCP, regardless of their secondment to the organizational unit that manages the RCP, and was responsible for registering and recording in RCP acts and resolutions adopted by the Body.
