Today, June 28th, seven Dutch executive government agencies signed a Declaration of Intent that describes the development of the eID (eHerkenning) facilities in the Netherlands.
In the presence of a representative of the Dutch Ministry of Economic Affairs, the ambition was expressed to open public digital services via eID. By signing the Declaration, the government agencies acknowledge the importance of the system for the development of digital public services in the Netherlands. In the future it will become easier for organisations to access these services, by using one service for different government utilities.
iWelcome is happy with this initiative. As a broker, iWelcome is responsible for more than 70% of all eID traffic in the Netherlands. We congratulate all involved parties with this step forward that was taken today.
