I the fundamental right of Association, recognized in article 22 of the Spanish Constitution, has been developed by the organic law 1/2002 of 22 March, regulating the right of Association.

This organic law, which offers a comprehensive regulation of the right of Association, constitutionally based on the principle of freedom of Association, divest public authorities, on the one hand, preventive control powers or, as stated in the law itself, which could entail a material control of legalization or recognition of the associations and, secondly, powers involving intervention or interference in their domestic powers. In this way, associations are born to the right from the moment of the Foundation Agreement adopted by developers, acquiring legal personality and full capacity to act, and give of their own rules of organization and operation through the corresponding statutes.

However, for reasons of legal certainty, it is a practice established in our law faculty of the associations entered in a register which, as exposed, lacks any establishing effect, performing only publicize the existence of the same object. Therefore, that the principles of freedom and voluntarism underlying the exercise of the right of Association are compatible with the constancy of the associations in administrative records for the sole purpose of advertising. In particular, registration makes public the Constitution and bylaws of associations and is a guarantee not only for members but also to third parties who are associated with them. Registration, therefore, despite their purely declarative character, is an act of clear importance to the legal traffic safety, which increasingly involves associative entities, developing activities of varied nature, economic, benefits, healthcare, counseling, promotion or defence of interests.

II from the point of view of the Organization, chapter V of the organic law 1/2002, March 22, refers to the different registers of associations, including the national register of associations.

Competition for the registration of associations of State level, of those who do not develop their functions mainly in the territory of an autonomous community and foreign associations engaged in activities in Spain stably is attributed to the registry. Furthermore, article 25 of the Basic Law refers to regulatory development the determination of its organic unit, structure and operation.

Such forecast was fulfilled by the publication of the regulation of the registration national associations and their relations with the remaining records of associations, approved by Royal Decree 1497 / 2003 of November 28. This regulation, structured in three titles, regulated different registration procedures, established the organic unit, organization and operation of the registry, and their relationships with other records of associations and with the rest of Government.

However, after more than ten years since its adoption, have been revealed some shortcomings and deficiencies which prevent improving the provision of a public service that benefits a broad spectrum of Spanish society. Much more if one takes into account that the national register of associations have emphasized a progressive as a result of the own vitality of the associative movement. If the entry into force of the Act organic 1/2002, March 22, the number of associations registered in this register barely exceeded 20,000, today that figure is approaching 50,000.

Aspects for improvement reaching all the contents of the existing standard, so partial amendment would prevent the global and coherent reform being pursued, ordered to meet both the needs of citizens, who are demanding administrative procedures more clear and simple, as the needs of the own record than accurate to update its structure and operation based on the accumulated experience , reception of the principles and rules common to the public records of legal persons and the possibilities today offered the different instruments of eGovernment.

The foregoing constitutes a set of reasons that advise the development of a new regulatory rule, through which give satisfaction to the objectives pursued. On the one hand, facilitate its formal obligations to citizens. On the other hand, configure logging as a public service transparent, flexible and technologically advanced. And, finally, to promote access to registration information complete, reliable and quality, as a guarantee of legal certainty. Complete and updated information that should be available to both citizens and public administrations and courts when these institutions require it for the exercise of their functions.

And all this from the absolute respect for the principle of minimum intervention, in such a way that the registration is attributed the tasks essential to practice with warranty registration and the updating of the data of the associations.

III the Regulation adopts a different structure and more logical, starting by addressing the same registry setting to then regulate the different ways of practicing the inscriptions. In particular, it is structured in three titles, which establishes the General provisions and the guiding principles; ordered the Organization and operation of the register and establish the rules of collaboration with other records of associations; and regulate different registration forms, with particular attention to registration procedures initiated at the request of the interested parties.

Preliminary title contains general provisions relating to the object of the registration, its character and organic dependency, which is kept in the Ministry of the Interior, and the computers of its working principles.

It is defined clearly the purpose of the register is the registration of non-profit associations of State-level which can be rated General or common regime, so that, on the one hand, excluded associations of autonomous and, on the other, associations for whose registration specific legislation provides for the corresponding special records.

For its part, to not distort the nature of the types of groupings of associations which includes the organic law, is offered for the first time the concept of Federation, Confederation and union, defining them as associative entities in second grade, which can only be promoted by legal persons of associative nature and entered in the corresponding register of associations.

Configurators principles, in line with those who belong to this type of records, are included as educational guidelines that serve as the integration and interpretation of the standard.

In addition, translates a consolidated reality but that is now explicit and it drives, which is the registration management, the practice of seats, the storage and relationship with citizens through informatic and telematic, media according to the collected principles in legislation regulating electronic access to public services and national schemes of safety and interoperability which constitute the regulatory context in which frame the performances of electronic nature which, for the record, are designated throughout the text. In particular, it is expected, already established for other public records, direct access to the registration data by Government and judicial organs, always on the occasion of the performance of their duties and responsibility.

The title I regulates the Organization and operation of the registry.

It is on the one hand, rushes a significant simplification of its structure, which is organized into four sections, according to the attribution of competences that article 25 of the organic law 1/2002, March 22, which excludes for registration any registration with respect to autonomous associations and those function subject to a specific regime. In this way, sections are established for the exclusive treatment of associations, federations, confederations and unions of associations of State-level youth organizations of identical scope and of foreign associations acting stable or lasting way in Spain. In addition, while service to the citizen, referred the file of names, content and form of access, and whose purpose is to publicize the entities previously registered in the registers of associations, in order to avoid duplication or similarity of names.

On the other hand, they are determined and develop the functions of the registry, limited to qualify and register the events that need to access it, depositing the mandatory documentation and give publicity to the seats and documents. In particular, States which associative acts are susceptible to registration and which documents are required deposit, as well as ways to publicize the content of seats and documents, with respect, in any case, of the legislation on protection of personal data are regulated.
This title includes the following new features.

They are regulated and defined the different types of seats that can be practiced in the registry, overcoming the narrow concept of registration and rectification that so far allowed registration sheets. Intends thereby to accommodate all circumstances relevant registration that occurs during the life of the Association and classify it according to its nature, allowing a complete and orderly information which serve effectively to the essential principle of publicity.

Registration sheet, support of the seats, is set to «registration spreadsheet», because the treatment of the information will be exclusively through electronic procedures.

Cover, in addition, an important legal vacuum by regulating two undoubted importance for legal traffic situations, such as mergers and transformations of associations, which until now did not have adequate evidence. Provided, therefore, how to register both the course of merger between two or more associations to create a new one, as the merger by absorption, as well as set, for the sole purpose of this regulation, what is meant by transformation, understanding this concept within both the modification of the territorial scope of activity, from State to regional and vice versa , as a change in legal status of the Association, when it ceases to be governed by the general and common regime of the organic law 1/2002, March 22, to undergo a specific partnership arrangements and vice versa.

The importance see precisely the regime of the associations that are transformed, either by reduction of scope or subject to a special legal regime, as this removed the possible situations of legal uncertainty or uncertainty of responsibilities that may arise from the absence of advertising during the time that is between the low register and registration in another different record. To do so, by means of the interim low figure, is established the maintenance of the Association transformed into the registry until irrefutable evidence of your registration in the regional or special registration that corresponds.

Conversely, formal runway is set to produce the registration in the register of those initially registered in the regional and special registers associations but who subsequently decide to extend its scope to the entire territory of the State or modify its legal system to conform to the general and common regime of the organic law 1/2002, March 22 respectively. Although these cases assume that such entities have access for the first time registration, are simplified formal obligations required at the time of submitting the application, being the record itself which, officially, requires the competent authority the necessary background to complete the record. Moreover, the entities are subject to all the contents of the regulations governing the national register of associations.

Without a doubt, one of the most relevant aspects of the associations, as it is in general for all legal persons, it is the need to identify them by a name that singularizes them and differentiate insofar as subjects of law.

The name affects the identity of associations, individualizes performances and directly affects the security of legal traffic.

Therefore, on the basis of the legal requirements for suitability, legality and availability, are collected in some detail a set of criteria that must be taken into account, on the one hand, entities associative to set its name and, secondly, by the own registry to deal with guarantees the corrections, if any, may be necessary. Such criteria, in addition, are widely planted in all the public records of legal persons, whether they are State or autonomic.

This precise regulation is intended to facilitate the establishment of the denomination, every time that the organic law, in addition to banning the identity of names, also prohibits the likeness, although this only in the case of which can create confusion. Even though the assumption of identity offers less doubt, however which establish the criteria necessary to avoid duplication of names, on similarity requires citizens double appraisal: the first, appreciate the similarity, and the second, determine if you can get to generate confusion in the legal traffic.

Therefore it is considered that requirements and limits established are of use both for those interested, at the time of the Constitution of the Association, and subsequently for registration, during the registration procedure, reducing margins of discretion which, until now, for lack of a more complete regulation, developed negatively in legal certainty.

As a novelty, is removed to the interested party the burden of providing in any case a certificate of translation of the name, when it is not in an official language other than English or a foreign language, which can only be required by the registry when it is deemed necessary.

In addition, by understanding that they correspond to a different level and that its use confusing situations can arise, denominations that include such Internet domains will not be accepted as ". is», «.com», «. net», «.org', among others.

Also, in the case of merger, expected that absorbent Association or the new resulting from the merger may take as denomination any of them extinguished by virtue of the merger, leaving without effect the remaining denominations.

Moreover, and within this title, regulating some issues affecting the coding of activities, to the permanent updating of the identity of members of representative bodies and foreign associations, and still listed registry treatment that should be given to certain situations of particular relevance such as transformation and fusion internal order discrepancies and the important act of dissolution of partnerships. They are all aspects that affect the operation of the register and that, by its novelty or demand this day-to-day management, must have an express regulation.

What concerning, in particular, discrepancies between partners that communicate to the registry, you remember, from the beginning of non-interference of the Administration on the operation of the associations, registration will not provide any writing by which members communicate differences of this nature and will only have registry reflected those internal order discrepancies which have been subject of lawsuit and so is accredited through the presentation of this and his admission.

With full respect to the principle of distribution of powers between the State and the autonomous communities of attribution of competences between administrative bodies, establishes two important rules of action, identified that applications for registration submitted to the registry associations regional and special will be sent to the competent authority for processing. With regard to these last, i.e. of the associations subject to a specific legal regime, whose registration in a special register is mandatory, only be accepted requests when a State standard of legal rank established its prior registration in the national register of associations. With this second rule, is also intended to avoid cases of double registrations, not covered by the organic law 1/2002, March 22, except that, at least, a State law to impose the citizens the load request twice, in two different registers, registration of a same Association.

Finally, establish collaborative relationships between the registry and the other registers of associations, and other public records and administrative bodies, as well as noted expressly that, in any case, provide the registration information that is required by the courts and tribunals.

Title II is referred to the registration procedures.

Distinguish first between inscriptions practiced at the request of interested parties and those that are carried out ex officio. These latest inscriptions ordered by the courts and tribunals, whose resolutions shall communicate directly to registration, include allowing you to eliminate for stakeholders required to file with the registry corresponding requests for registration and record. They will also have consideration of registration of trade which refer to the Declaration and revocation of public utility associations, when competition lies in the Ministry of the Interior and it's acts of obligatory publication in the «Official Gazette».

In terms of registration procedures as such, is also distinguished for the first time between the rules common to all proceedings and those specific to each of them.
Chapter I, concerning common rules, collects the General administrative procedure along with those provided for in the organic law 1/2002, March 22. Thus, provides a complete procedure in different phases of initiation, instruction, and resolution, where they have reflection aspects such as the requirements to applications, deadline, troubleshooting procedure, request reports to other administrative bodies, audience, time resolution, effects of the silence and resources that come against acts of registration or refusal of registration.

Within this chapter highlights the establishment of a minimum prevention when stakeholders communicate outside the statutory period of one month the modification or update of the data contained in the registry. In any case rejected the registration of the new information, but an accreditation certificate that is valid, because only the permanent correspondence of the registry with the extra reality allows to satisfy the principle of advertising may be required.

The possibility of the instructor's request report to other administrative bodies when the name, purposes, activities and other statutory content may affect the scope of their powers, in particular, to avoid that this name may be confused with any official or that weekends may involve the exercise by the Association of public administrative functions is also extracted from common administrative procedure. This option has been revealed as necessary in a large number of procedures for establishment of associations, of associations, modification of statutes and the opening of offices in Spain of foreign associations processing, so it is accomodated expressly in order to provide registration, in each case, the elements of judgement required to solve.

And it is also considered relevant to that standard provides expressly for the case of denial of the requested registration, where the Association does not meet the General requirements established by law, or in the case of entities that do not have the status of association or directly excluded from the scope of the organic law 1/2002, March 22. This type of resolution is covered by articles 24 and 30.3 of this organic law, and own constitutional jurisprudence, that the exercise of the fundamental right of Association understands only injured when the registration denial lacks proper motivation or can be described as unfounded or arbitrary.

Furthermore, chapter II relates all possible registration procedures and details for each of these specific requirements to consider by interested parties at the time of the request and accompanying prescriptive documentation. In this respect stands that it eliminates the burden for those interested submit in duplicate the founding act and the statutes initial or modified. It is eliminated, therefore, an obligation which curiously has remained constant in our legal system since the first law on associations of 1887 but which already lacks any justification. In this sense, amending the Royal Decree 397/1988, of 22 April, which regulates the registration of youth associations, in order to suppress the burden for this type of associations the submission in triplicate of the founding act and the by-laws to request the registration of the entity. Moreover, stays generally the type of documentation required far associations, considered the essential minimum to produce with guarantees the respective inscriptions, and is added, for a small number of procedures, the Faculty of the register of stakeholders request a certificate of updating of data, when this is necessary to avoid the fragmentation of information and ensure the consistency of the publicity.

In particular, will practice at the request of the interested parties the inscriptions of Constitution of associations, federations, confederations and unions of associations, of transformation of associations, modification of statutes, boards or bodies of representation, opening and closing of delegations or settlements, incorporation and separation of associations to a Federation, Confederation or union of associations or membership in international organizations merger and dissolution of any associative entities referred to, and delegations in Spain of foreign associations.

From this relationship, as described above, are regulated ex novo procedures of application for registration of the merger and transformation of associations, and for all of them, in general, is predetermine in detail the requirements of applications and accompanying documentation to be submitted in the register, in guarantee of greater certainty for stakeholders.

I.e. the regulation of procedures, their general and specific aspects, is comprehensively to benefit legal certainty and to avoid that citizens have to handle constant queries or clarifications to the registry arising from an eventual regulatory failure.

Therefore, more detail and fewer burdens are elements that benefit of the pursued objective of setting clear and simple procedures.

This will also help putting at the disposal of the citizens of each procedure of registration application models, adapted to the new requirements of the regulation, as well as other documents of mandatory contribution, as foundational records, statutes, or certificates.

IV. the other two important issues relating to the activity of associations, which are noteworthy news dealt.

The first transitional provision of the organic law 1/2002, March 22, on the one hand, establishes associations registered prior to its entry into force shall, within the period of two years, notify the competent registry found in situation of activity and performance. On the other hand, currently has the existence of more than 14,000 entities registered in the national register of associations that have failed to fulfil this obligation, i.e. of partnerships that were formed and registered in accordance with the law 191/1964, of 24 December, associations, and that have not reported found in operation or promoted the registration of any associative Act during at least, the last twelve years. Therefore, to ensure the permanent correspondence between associative reality and reality registration, deemed relevant, for purposes of advertising and in third-party guarantee, empower the registry to take evidence of this situation through marginal note, which will be cancelled when such associations submit the mandatory declaration of activity and performance.

On the other hand, and in order to perform a sort of entities that promotes publicity and statistical function, are issued as an annex to the regulation, codes of activities of associations. Given the extent and complexity of the purposes which the associations are including in their statutes is chooses to publish a list of codes to make own associations which, at the time of the application for registration, to identify their main activity or more characteristic. That power, however, is configured as a choice of those concerned, by which, in their absence, the registration will proceed to classification of the entity. The encoding has developed a based on decimal and its contents with respect, has been taken into account the set of actions that are more common among the associations, joining the list some unknown or less relevant between the associative collective a decade ago, such as those relating to the Internet, social media, sustainable development, dependence, corporate social responsibility, entrepreneurship or co-development. In any case, such a code must adapt constantly to social evolution, by which, for the purposes of updating, expected that it can be amended by ministerial order.

V Finally, is used to modify certain aspects the Real 1740 Decree / 2003, of 19 December, on procedures relating to public utility associations.

Thus, and in order for the proper verification of the requirements inherent in the Declaration of public utility, amending article 2 of Royal Decree 1740 / 2003, of 19 December, to collect the obligation of stakeholders present a memory separated by each of the two financial periods prior to the date of filing of the application. Also, article 5 is changed to update accounting standard applicable to this type of entities, i.e. the existing Royal Decree 1491 / 2011, on 24 October, laying down the rules of adaptation of the General Accounting Plan to non-profit entities and model plan of action of non-profit entities.

This Royal Decree has been subjected to the Spanish Agency of data protection report.
