I don't think so. I heard rumors, but couldn't find it in the law. There only
is a registry for people that sells or produces audio and video
material for profit. Disclaimer: I don't have the law with me right now.

When there is such a registry, it is about people that produces
<thing> for profit, so your idea is not applicable. Even if it was it
wouldn't break anything. Neither politicians nor the police is
impressed if people is spending hours in queues.
