With the inlogmethodes all the tests carried out, but in the meantime it is still missing the “uniform set of requirements,” where all funds need to comply with. Also still working on a bill that the introduction of the eID.

SP Mp Ronald van Raak said to be concerned that now a system is being built that ultimately is not in the taste will fall in the Room. “The idea that we pilots, means will work out, and then a foundation is going to build, that seems to me not a good idea.”
