Identification and electronic signature mechanisms in relation to the person signing

IdCat-Mòbil

This is a citizen-oriented identification and electronic signature mechanism based on sending single-use passwords to a mobile. Contact details must first be recorded in the file at the Electronic Office of the Government of Catalonia.

IdCat-Mòbil Information

Digital certificate

Digital certificates issued by all the certification bodies classified by the Catalan Open Administration Consortium as valid to identify members of the public and businesses before Catalan public authorities. The digital certificate is therefore a means of identification that determines both the user’s identity and their type of accreditation. The type of accreditation profile determines the level of representation of the person identifying themselves and acting for third parties and/or themselves. The latter information will be determined by the data included in the digital certificate used by the public.

Digital Certificates Information

Non-encrypted accreditation mechanism (username and password).

Non-encrypted accreditation mechanism with username and password for non-resident foreign citizens. The Institut Ramon Llull undertakes to generate and send the username and password to non-resident foreign citizens after having verified the documentation accrediting their identity. For this reason, non-resident foreign citizens who do not have an accreditation because it is the first time they are submitting an application to the Institut Ramon Llull should aply for accreditation
The accreditation is valid for five years counting from the date on which the documentation accrediting the applicant’s identity is submitted, unless there is some change. 
Unlike the ID mechanism, the accreditation  mechanism gives access to all the applicant’s procedures.

ID mechanism

The ID mechanism is an uncrypted system using a user name and a password, whereby the Institut Ramon Llull undertakes to send the user name and password in a secure manner to interested parties after having verified the documentation accrediting their identity. This mechanism only gives access to the procedure with which it is associated.

    In the case of affidavits, withdrawls, waivers, supporting documentation or appeals, Spanish citizens and residents of Spain wishing to submit these documents online must possess the relevant digital certificate or IdCat Mobile. However, submission of other documents through the electronic office within the framework of a file already open is also possible with the ID mechanism.
