Last Friday, March 3, 2023, the President of the Republic Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva issued Decree No. 11,429, which updates the bodies that operate in the Citizen Identification Service and extends the deadline for adapting to the standard of the Identity.
The rule provides that the Special Secretariat of the Federal Revenue edit the procedure and form of access to the CPF base, a number that is the key to link the data of the natural person in the Citizen Identification Service.
In addition, the Federal Executive Chamber for Citizen Identification (CEFIC), which exercises the role of governing the identification of natural persons within the scope of the Federal Public Administration and the procedures for issuing the Identity Card, is now coordinated by the Civil House of Presidency of the Republic and will have as members representatives of the Digital Government Secretariat of the Ministry of Management and Innovation in Public Services, the Federal Police of the Ministry of Justice and Public Security and the Special Secretariat of the Federal Revenue of Brazil of the Ministry of Finance.
“A very important decree at the time when it brings the new composition of CEFIC, reducing its number and determining its governance, with the Chief of Staff having greater responsibility for this project. This is a demonstration of the relevance of the Brazilian Identity Card for the Presidency of the Republic and, with this, we will ensure that the identification is consolidated as established by the norms in Brazil”, celebrated the CEO of the International Institute of Identification ( InterID), Célio Ribeiro.
