    The Apostille Convention is an agreement to simplify the procedure of certification of official documents between countries. The electronic apostille program (e-APP) was launched for dealing with digital documents. Due to legislative and system differences in electronic documents, few States support e-APP. In this paper, we model the information required for a certificate verification system independent of format (paper / electronic) of Apostille certificate and official document, and design the structure of data sharing and verification system for global e-Register service. The e-Register service proposed in this paper is based on a consortium block chain to prevent monopolizing the data, and to ensure the availability to all stakeholders.
