The Registrar is an independent public office holder who administers the Cooperative Societies Act CAP.152 (COSO ACT CAP 152)
This Act guides how Cooperative Societies are run. The COOP ACT CAP 152 started on 1982.

The Registrar's office supports and regulates the cooperatives that are incorporated under the Coop Act. It does this in a variety of ways: by advising them on how to incorporate, by training managers, members and key staff in good corporate governance, by making sure they comply with the law and by intervening when needed.

What is a co-operative?

A co-operative is an organization owned by the members who use its services or are employed there. Co-operatives can provide virtually any product or service.Co-operatives exist in every sector of the economy and can touch every aspect of our lives. You can be born in a health care co-op and be buried by a funeral co-op. In between you can work in a worker's co-op, live in a housing co-op, buy your groceries, clothing and other items from retail co-ops, send your children to a child care co-op, do all your banking at a credit union, and purchase your insurance from an insurance co-op.Co-operatives provide consumers with a distinct values-based and community-owned and controlled alternative. Unlike the private, public, or voluntary sectors, all co-operatives around the world are guided by the same seven principles:

1. Voluntary and open membership

2. Democratic member control

3. Member economic participation

4. Autonomy and independence

5. Education, training, and information

6. Co-operation among co-operatives

7. Concern for community
