Fear regulates law that unifies identification documents

March 20, 2018

It was published in the DOU this Tuesday, 6, the decree that regulates new document of national validity that brings together different civil records. With the national Identification document name (DNI), the proposal is to concentrate several documents on a single one. In the DNI will be available the information regarding the CPF, voter title, CNH, professional identity, CTPS, PIS, the blood type, the Rh factor, among other data.

The intention is that as of July this year the initiative begins to reach Brazilian citizens. In the future, DNI should include several documents as agreements are signed with public bodies for the integration of the information base. The proposal is that the document can also be accessed digitally by the mobile phone in a secure way.

The DNI is the result of the National Civil Identification Project, which aims to allow the issuance of a single document of the Brazilian citizen, valid in the national territory, as well as the biometric authentication of the citizen in all the organs and entities Governmental and private. The bill was approved by the National Congress and sanctioned by the Presidency of the Republic in May 2017.
