Act on e-government

As of May 1 2016 an Act no. 305/2013 Coll on electronic form of exercising the authority of public organs (e-Government Act) came into effect. According to this Act, all legal persons are obliged to communicate with public organs via central portal – electronically via electronic mail box created and activated by Government Office of the Slovak republic. No such obligation, however, arises for natural persons, or rather self-employed subjects, as this form of communication with public organs is facultative. For successful communication via electronic mailbox under the e-Government Act, subjects are required to have ID with electronic chip and with personal security code, which can be arranged for at ID office of District headquarters of Police department or at contact centres of Ministry of internal affairs of Slovak republic.
