How do I use a mandate specifier?
You can use a mandate specifier to limit or target the powers of the mandate to apply, for example, only to a certain property, a client company or its department. Each e-service that uses Suomi.fi e-Authorizations itself determines whether they use specifiers in their services.
Only use the specifier when you have received more detailed instructions on the e-service in which the mandate is to be used. The use of a specifier is not compulsory, and you may grant a mandate without one. A mandate granted without a specifier does not restrict the scope of transactions that can be performed by the assignee (e.g., an individual accountant may act on behalf of all accounting firm's customers).
A mandate specifier may be available
- for a mandate for transactions: for example, a property ID may be used to limit the mandate to a certain property
- with the right to create a mandate: for example, a sub-organisation ID may be used to restrict the right to grant a mandate to certain units or departments in an organisation
- with a mandate to represent: for example, a customer ID may be used to restrict the mandate to represent a certain customer only.
