Authorisation with an application

A mandate is an electronic power of attorney, the details of which are entered in the authorisation register. A mandate can be registered on the basis of an application if you or your company or organisation cannot authorise yourselves in Suomi.fi e-Authorizations. The time required for processing an application is 2–3 weeks from the date on which the application was received.

Who can authorise with an application?

An application can be used for te authorisation if the assignor is one of the following:

  • An organisation that does not have representatives recorded in a register (e.g. public authorities, municipalities, parishes, educational institutions, foundations, partnerships and deceased persons’ estates with a business ID)
  • Finnish company for which no managing director, persons entitled to represent the company or board members have been entered in the Trade Register
  • A foreign company that has not been registered in Finland or whose representatives’ Finnish personal identity code has not been recorded in the Trade Register
  • An association with no persons entitled to represent the association alone. Check the rules of representations entered in the registers of associations from the PRH association register before submitting the application, as the association can probably grant mandates in Suomi.fi e-Authorizations.
  • A private entrepreneur who does not have personal identification tokens for electronic services or who cannot or does not know how to use electronic services
  • A person who is under guardianship and whose guardian is currently using the Katso ID

If the assignor is someone else, the mandate can, with a few exceptions, be granted or invalidates by the assignor himself or herself in Suomi.fi e-Authorizations.
