Division for Apps and Cross-Border eIDs

eID and SDG - cross-border digital identifications

The division handles tasks that supports the use of Danish eIDs on a cross-border basis within the EU and EEA. The eIDAS Regulation requires that citizens, under certain circumstances, must be able to use their national eID to authenticate themselves in other countries' digital self-services. The division also handles tasks linked to the implementation of the EU Digital Identity Wallet (EUDI Wallet) outlined in the revised eIDAS Regulation.

Moreover, the division is responsible for the national coordination of the implementation of the Single Digital Gateway (SDG) Regulation in Denmark. The purpose of the Regulation is to grant online access to information, administrative procedures, and assistance services for businesses and residents in the EU.

Within the scope of work, the team contributes to a common European foundation for secure electronic identification and interaction, thereby increasing the efficiency of economic and social development in public and private online services.
