It is the day that your name was first recorded in the National Register. It won't be before the date of the police visit to check that you were actually living where you had stated you were. This date doesn't appear on your registration ID card but it does appear on any certificates (of residence, for example) that the commune/gemeente has issued for you, and obviously the commune/gemeente can tell you what it is.
