As far as the first amendment is concerned, Royal Decree 1671/2009, of 6 November, Article 15 creates the electronic registration of proxies to act electronically in the General Administration of the State and its dependent or linked public bodies. Paragraph 1 of this Article limits the scope of this register to the exclusive effects of electronic action before the General Administration of the State. It is necessary to remove this limitation from the register, extending its scope to any administrative action, regardless of the channel through which it is carried out.

As for the following amendment, Law 59/2003 of 19 December of the Electronic Signature establishes in its article 4.4 that the use of electronic signatures in communications affecting classified information, public security or national defence shall be governed by its specific rules. Article 17 (3) of the same law provides that certification service providers who enter a pseudonym in the electronic certificate at the signing of the signatory must verify their true identity and keep the documentation which the accredit. Such certification service providers shall be required to disclose the identity of the signatories upon request by the judicial bodies in the performance of the duties they have attributed and in the other cases provided for in this Regulation. requires, as provided for in Article 11.2, the Organic Law 15/1999 of 13 December on the Protection of Personal Data.

In this regard, Article 13.5 of Law 59/2003 of 19 December states that certification service providers may carry out the verification actions provided for in this article by themselves or through other natural or legal persons, public or private, being responsible, in any case, for the service provider of certification. However, in accordance with the provisions of Article 22.3 of Royal Decree 1671/2009 of 6 November 2009, a certification service provider may not issue certificates of public employee by entering into a pseudonym only, which would coincide, without prejudice to the use of other identifiers, with the professional identification number of public employees affected by public security, national defence or using classified information such as the members of the public State Security Forces and Corps, Armed Forces personnel or personnel National Intelligence Center statutory.

The fulfillment of the legal functions attributed to these public institutions and agencies, as well as the use, if any, of classified information for such compliance, makes it necessary in these areas to The electronic staff at the service of those institutions is not based on an electronic certificate linked to the name of the holder and his/her national identity card number, which is currently and without any exception Article 22 Royal Decree 1671/2009, of 6 November 2009, is required.

For these reasons, it is necessary to modify this precept by adding a new paragraph allowing the use of the electronic certificate of public employee by means of a pseudonym. This reform makes it possible to issue a certificate of public employee with the obligations to disclose the true identity of the public servants and employees concerned in the event of being required by the judicial bodies in the exercise of their duties or within the meaning of Article 11.2 of the Organic Law 15/1999 of 13 December.
