The common contact register
The state and local government must have access to correct contact information for you in order to be able to send you messages and documents electronically. This information is collected in a common national register for contact information and preferences regarding electronic communication.
The common contact register may contain
- your mobile telephone number and e-mail address
- information concerning your choice of digital mailbox
- your choice of language for electronic communication
- your preferences for electronic communication.
It is the Agency for Public Management and eGovernment (Difi) which is the data controller for the contact information in the common contact register.
The legal basis for registration of the data can be found in the Regulations concerning electronic communication with and within the public administration (eForvaltningsforskriften) sections 29 and 31.
