Romania considers eID card scheme


Romanian officials have confirmed that the country is mulling the introduction of eID cards to improve their identity systems.

The Romanian Ministry of Interior announced that it has put up for public debate a draft law on the introduction of electronic ID cards.

According to the Ministry’s statement, this draft law is in line with the measures set out in the 2017-2020 Government programme, “its implementation being aimed at facilitating the citizens’ access to electronic services and at contributing to the development of the ‘electronic administration’ concept.”

The electronic ID cards will allow the holders to login to the IT systems of public institutions for various electronic services. This should simplify the citizens interaction with public authorities. The new electronic ID cards will also replace the current national health card, the Ministry announced.

The electronic ID card will have a chip which will store electronic data about the holder, including biometric data such as fingerprints.
