Article 6 of Law 39/2015, of 1 October, provides that the general registers of powers of attorney shall not prevent the existence of particular registers of each register in which the powers granted for the performance of procedures are registered. specific to it. In addition, each body may have its own electronic register of powers of attorney.

In any case, these general and particular records must be fully interoperable with each other, in order to guarantee their interconnection and compatibility, as well as the telematic transmission of the applications, writs and communications that are incorporated into them.

However, for this interoperability, the corresponding Technical Standard for Interoperability of the data model and interoperability conditions for electronic records of powers of attorney must be previously approved, which is currently being prepared.

THE POWER OF ATTORNEY is the electronic register of powers of attorney of the General State Administration, which -like REPRESENTATIVE or other similar registers- allows the registration of representations in order for the proxies to act before the Public Administrations on behalf of third parties.

On the other hand, the purpose of the Electronic Register of Bidding Companies of the Generalitat de Catalunya (RELI) is to facilitate the participation of companies and to speed up the actions of the Catalan public administrations in contractual award procedures (Decree 107/2005 , May 31).

Among the various data that are registered in the RELI, stand out those relating to the representation of bidding companies such as:

  • Date of document and protocol number for granting powers of representation in contractual procedures.
  • Surnames and names of the people representing them.
  • Identification of the powers of representation attributed: bidding, signing contracts, assigning credits, setting up deposits and collecting.
  • Term of duration of the powers of representation.
  • Regime of action of the faculties of representation.
  • Number and expiry date of the identity document of the representatives.

In view of the provisions of the administrative procedure regulations, the REPRESENTA service is expected to be integrated with APODERA and RELI, as soon as the indicated technical standard is approved and the integrations are available.
