Juez del registro del estado civil

I was reading a birth certificate from Mexico, and it has the term:

juez encargado del registro del estado civil

This appears to be referring to the person who is in charge of the civil registry. Would this be properly translated as 'judge' or something else? Maybe 'officer in charge of the civil registry'?

EDIT: This same birth certificate refers to the person who recorded the birth as "juez" also.
