Since the strengthening of the partnership between ValidSign and Centric that took place in April 2021, a lot of work has been done on the integrations between ValidSign and Centric’s core applications.
Since 1 January 2022, for example, it has been possible to digitally sign the birth declaration with ValidSign in Centric Burgerzaken. New parents can then digitally declare their newborn baby together, from the hospital or simply from home, with the birth declaration eDienst. In this way, both parents are involved in the declaration of their child, which was often impossible because of the three-day period.
How it works? They go to the website of the municipality on their phone, tablet or laptop and log in with DigiD to the eDienst Aangifte geboorte. Here they fill in the birth details of their child and select the doctor or midwife who was present at the birth. After this, the relevant midwife or doctor receives a digital birth file together with a digital doctor’s statement and easily signs it digitally with ValidSign.
The signed birth file is digitally sent to the registrar. After checking the data, he or she presses agreement and the child is automatically included in the Personal Records Database.
Other integrations between ValidSign and core Centric applications will follow. Soon, the eServices Applications for proxy voting pass and Passing on relocation will also be launched.
