Information for Danish authorities

Danish authorities have the possibility to integrate their digital self-services to the Danish eIDAS-infrastructure (eID-gateway). This enable Danes living in other EU/EEA countries or citizens from countries of the EU/EEA with an affiliation to Denmark to use Danish digital self-services, using an eID of the country of residence.

The purpose of the integration is that authorities will decrease the processing time on manual case handling and the amount of resources spent. Meanwhile, becoming more electronic and using less handling cases manually, will increase security for citizens living abroad.

Single Digital Gateway

The EU regulation concerning the establishment of the Single Digital Gateway demands that citizens and companies from other countries of the EU/EEA must have access to information and digital self-services within a selected number of areas.

The European Commission adopted the SDG regulation in 2018. This implies that member states of the EU/EEA shall make information and digital self-services accessible for companies and citizens across the member states by December 2023. The SDG regulation is primarily based on the eIDAS-regulation, which became effective in 2018. However, the eIDAS-regulation requires that member states must recognize each other’s eIDs in the respective digital self-services (in Denmark, this is done via eID-gateway).
