Electronic notifications are official communications from the Administration addressed to citizens, companies and entities, with all legal guarantees.

After carrying out a management or a procedure, the Administration can communicate with you through an electronic notification. You can also receive a notification related to a procedure initiated ex officio by the Administration itself (such as a penalty).

You can receive the electronic notification notice by email or SMS. However, the notification mailbox can be accessed from the issuing Administration's electronic headquarters or website.

Here are the steps to access an electronic notification:

1. Receipt of notice of notification

When the Administration notifies you, you will receive an email or SMS:

    • With one-time use code
    • With idCAT Mobile or Cl@ve
    • With digital certificate

2. Access to the email or SMS link

Access the link in the email or SMS you received ("Sign in to access"):
