Promoting online services between countries
In order to promote traffic of online services between countries, the Ministry of the Interior has expressed the desire to make eHerkenning suitable for European use. The technique which makes it possible to do online business abroad, has been realised thanks to the authorised suppliers of eHerkenning, in collaboration with RVO, RvlG, Logius, as well as the Ministryof the Interior and other European countries. Because of this, it is possible for Dutch companies and organisations that have means with assurancelevel EH3 or higher, to log into affiliated government organisations in EEA-countries.
