1 PROPOSAL of law No. 94/X explanatory memorandum 1. This Bill seeks to create the citizen card and establishing the system of your issue and use. With the creation of this new card, the Government intends to, firstly, strengthening the safety standards of the civil identification and, simultaneously, introducing in the public administration and in society in General an important tool for your modernization. Conceived in this Bill as a genuine certificate of citizenship, the citizen card takes so the form of a physical document, which identifies visual and in person the citizen, safely, but also of a digital document, which allows the citizen to identify and authenticate themselves electronically in the acts in to intervene.

2. Strengthen citizens ' identification security, harmonizing the system of identification of nationals with EU requirements is one of the central objectives of the creation of the citizen card. Indeed, it is well known that the current model of identity card faces growing difficulties to respond satisfactorily to the international standards of quality and security of identity and travel documents, especially those new requirements to protect against fraud. In this way, and subscribing to enhanced security policy already implemented in the new electronic passport, recently approved through Decree-Law No. 138/2006, of July 26, the citizen's card must incorporate an integrated circuit (chip) and the customization process uses advanced devices, namely for safe insertion of data in integrated circuit, guaranteeing you a high level of integrity , authenticity, and confidentiality. In the definition of the levels of security, this proposal incorporates the provisions of 2 by Regulation (EC) No 2252/2004, of 13 December (Official Journal n° L 385 of December 29, 2004). The details of the technical specifications are sent to Ordinances to more easily be able to follow the development of the international technical guidelines.

3. In this challenge of the creation and issuance of a new instrument for secure identification, the XVII constitutional Government also sees an opportunity to offer every citizen the keys to enter the universe of electronic documents. In this way, each citizen's card includes the option to be associated with a qualified electronic signature. If that is your desire, the holder may well use your card to sign and authenticate your documents you send electronically. Later, with the generalization of the exploitation of this opportunity, the citizens will also have at your fingertips a tool to quickly check the authorship and the integrity of the documents are sent electronically by other citizens. Consecrating the offer of qualified electronic signature functionality in a document that is in widespread use and complies with the most demanding secure identification parameters, such as the citizen card, this Bill applies a strategic option of greater significance to the spread of information and communication technologies (ICTs), for the development of innovation activities and knowledge and , as is general purpose, for the approach to technological advanced societies border.

4. On the other hand, the citizen card project was designed to be a vehicle of bureaucracy and administrative modernization. Are well known diagnoses who denounce and criticize the bureaucratic practices of the public administration and the livelihoods of a culture of mistrust. Pass excellent Diagnostics to concrete actions of administrative simplification to facilitate life for citizens constitutes a permanent orientation of the XVII constitutional Government. This Bill provides for so be printed in the same documentary, the main support contact numbers of citizens with the Public Administration: the civil identification number, tax identification number, the number of 3 user of health services and the Social security identification number. Is, moreover, a measure of financial rationalization in terms of identification documents before the Public Administration, to the extent that the new card is the functionality of four. In the context of the reform of the rules governing the preparation of the electoral roll, is considered the Elimination of voter card is used only the citizen card. Based on the use of modern information technologies, also the procedures for the issuance, renewal and delivery of citizen card combines the advantages of decentralized existence of reception services with no printed and the reduction to the minimum of paper media, which mostly are used for sending secret codes or card activation issue in exceptional cases, temporary identification document.

5. Regarding the subject of protection of personal data, we must mention that the reception services carry out successive connections separately with each of the databases that keep your autonomy. These links allow you to, at first, confirm the identity of the applicant, and then provide confirmation or of the identification numbers which are included in the citizen card. The fate of the personal information collected with the statement of claim is legally set: in addition to its printing or insertion into the own citizen's card, the files with the facial image, autographed, height and signature prints are communicated only to the database concerning civil identification. When it comes to the use of the features of the card, the rule is the exclusive control of the citizen card holder itself on access to information stored in the integrated circuit (chip) and on its elements. Exceptions are provided for reasonable, the information about the address and comparison of fingerprints. As for the address, recalled that the police authorities are legally required, in the exercise of its supervisory functions, in particular with regard to road traffic offences committed by pedestrians or by individuals transported, to instruct the record with the address of the agent of the infringement.


4 6. Finally, it should be noted the flexible discipline outlined for the transitional period. The replacement of the identity card of all citizens should not be held simultaneously, by nuisance that this solution would cause to the citizens but also for the extra risk of disturbing the security of the entire system and circuit card customization. Who knows, by the knowledge of other experiences of migration, which in these cases always arise replacement circumstances and difficulties, or unforeseen circumstances, so it is recommended to keep some prudence in setting quantitative targets and it is essential to develop and periodically review prevention plans and contingency plans. Therefore, dedicates the objective of a gradual coverage of the national territory and do not need the citizen any exceptional duty: is the existence of a contact related to the ID or with some other cards, only then trigger the process of issuance of the citizen card. And provides for the creation, by order of a regulatory legal framework allowing evolutionary processes monitoring in the transitional period of replacement of identity card by the citizen card.
