map-europe-1024x1024In September 2018, European Regulation 910/2014 will take effect. It allows all European citizens and businesses to use their own national eID in the other European countries. This naturally makes life much easier.

Access to Europe

Public services, such as applying for a birth certificate or parking permit, will become digitally accessible to Europeans residing in the Netherlands. For instance expats, seasonal workers, students etc. Instead of applying for a Dutch DigiD, they can log in directly using their own familiar eID.

Connectis is working with the Ministry of Economic Affairs to establish an advanced network of connections between more than 100 Dutch municipalities and the available European eIDs.

Of course we are not finished yet. Other national public services will become accessible to European eIDs, with reciprocal access in the other European countries. This means that, as a Dutch citizen, you will soon be able to log in to other European countries with your own DigiD.

However, eIDAS is not only meant for citizens; companies can also benefit. Offering cross-border online services using eID increases user-friendliness and the online safety of services such as e-commerce, financial retail (banking and insurance), healthcare and services offered by the telecom sector.

Connectis offers the tools to enable private services at cross-border level, so that all citizens – and clients – of Europe can have access.

Why eIDAS?

Imagine you are traveling through Europe with your passport. And in every country you are required to have a different passport. That would be a bit strange, right?
