If a authorized representative is listed on the CoC extract as jointly authorized then the details of all jointly authorized representatives must be entered on the registration form. Also, all these jointly authorized representatives must sign the registration form. If you can provide bylaws that show that your organization may also be represented by a more limited number of authorized representatives, it is sufficient to provide the relevant authorized representatives along with the bylaws.
If a authorized representative is listed as restricted authorized on the CoC extract, we have some requirements for this restriction. For a eHerkenning EH2 and EH2+, you need to specify at least two authorized representative(s) who have limited authority. For a eHerkenning EH3, you need to specify the majority of all authorized representatives who are limitedly authorized. For a eHerkenning EH4, there should be no limited authority.

What if there is no authorized representative listed on the CoC extract?
In this situation, a legal entity (B.V., N.V., etc.) is listed on the CoC extract under "Directors" or "Authorized Persons". You will find the details of authorized representative in the CoC extract of the listed legal entity. You must also provide us with a copy of that above-mentioned extract from the Chamber of Commerce.
In the event that you request eHerkenning for a government organization, you can use additional documents to prove the applicant's authority. Examples include mandates, letters of appointment, etc. You must provide us with a copy of these documents.
What if the organization you are applying for eHerkenning is a municipality?
In a municipality, the mayor is always the independent authorized representative. It is just not always desirable to list the mayor as authorized representative in every application for a eHerkenning. We recommend appointing a authorization manager directly. For more information click here.
