It will be identified in his Personal Area (APSC) and will download the certificate of representative, following the indications of the manual.

I want it in software support, but I don’t have an ACCV certificate.

You have requested the certificate of entity representative in software support and we have notified you for its download, but you do not have a personal certificate of the ACCV, to connect. You can get your free ACCV certificate in one PRU. Or you can identify yourself with your ID. You can activate this at any DNI issuing office.

The PIN is generated by the holder at the time of download and we do not know it at any time. If you do not have a copy of your certificate, you will need to request a new one and pay the cost.

How do I install my card certificate?

We will send you the empty card and the holder must go to a Registration Point (PRU), to load the certificate on it. Once loaded, follow ours installation guides.

I had 60 days to generate the certificate and I didn’t. Now what?

The ACCV notified you more than 60 days ago that you could generate your entity representative certificate, in software or on a card, and you did not. There is no solution for this and you have to apply for a new certificate, as well as pay the cost.

I can’t remember my PIN on my card or I blocked it.

The PIN and PUK are generated in the first issue of the card and are included in the Certification Agreement, although you can change them later. You can go to a PRU to unlock your card PIN, if you haven’t changed your PUK. You can also follow this manual, to unlock it on your computer.

I blocked the PUK on my card.

Your card has become unusable and you need to purchase a new one. This is a security measure and cannot be compromised.

Another person may appear on your behalf if you provide a power of attorney or a specific clause in a power of attorney, which expressly authorizes him to obtain the digital certificate in your name. He must provide your personal information and accept the terms of the contract on your behalf. You have a model of clause here.
