Extension of issuance and validity of qualified certificates for a recognized method of authorization until December 31, 2024

| Reading Time: 1 Min

On October 17, 2023, an updated interpretative opinion on the application of the Decree of the Ministry of Investments, Regional Development and Informatisation of the Slovak Republic No. 511/2022 Coll. on Recognised Methods of Authorisation was published. The above opinion allows the use of an ID card or a residence document with a chip issued until June 20, 2021, for valid authorization in the form of an electronic signature even after December 31, 2023, without the need to replace the document.

In order to extend the possibility of using the ID card issued until June 20, 2021, it is necessary to download a new certificate for the recognized authorization method through the eID client application (version 4.4.), which will replace the old document. According to the information of the Central Administration Portal, this is only a temporary solution, as new certificates are currently being issued with validity until December 31, 2024 (the validity of certificates issued before October 11, 2023, expires on December 31, 2023) only.

The eID client application in its current version will automatically notify the user when the certificate is about to expire.
