Data exchange

One of the principles of e-government is to minimise administrative formalities. This means that information should only have to be communicated to the government once. This information may relate to personal, company and government data.

Other then these 'classic' personal and company data, the DG DT can provide the possibility to consult, alter or exchange a combination of data for certain groups . We already designed services as 'eBirth', 'eDepot' and 'Fourth Way' for users in need of a fixed combination of data. For users in need of other combinations of data, DG DT can provide a customised service.

The information is stored in so-called “authoritative sources” – databases where master data is stored. The DG DT guarantees access to these authoritative sources and the fast exchange of information in a uniform and secure way through the Federal Service Bus (FSB).

You can find the general conditions for the use of the DG DT services (PDF, 322.11 Kb) here.

You can use web services to consult personal data in the National Register or consult and update data in the Bis Register.

You can use web services to create, consult and modify company data and certificates in the databases of the Federal Public Service Economy.
