“Digitisation means progress.”
Marita Rigter, back-office support officer at the BEL Combination, in the province of Noord-Holland.
The municipalities of Blaricum, Eemnes and Laren are amongst the 81 Dutch municipalities who become eIDAS proof by the end of 2016. Together, we form the BEL Combination. In our municipalities digitisation means progress. The online channel is increasingly offered to citizens, companies and governmental organizations in comparison to physical visits to our municipality or phone contact.
Becoming eIDAS proof is part of the service level programme. We expect that European citizens and representatives of Dutch businesses will contact us with the same types of questions as Dutch citizens. Furthermore, we want to be able to explain how using eIDAS works for them. We expect that the service they will be most interested in using is to requesting an extract from the Civil Registry. Instead of having to e-mailing or posting us a copy of their identification card, they can use their eID.
