The use of electronic services requires strong user identification. In this case, the user must verify his/her identity by using the national authentication service Suomi.fi.
Foreign users acting on behalf of a company and who do not have a Finnish personal identification code must apply for a mandate provided by an official in the Suomi.fi mandate service provided by officials. After the mandates are granted, users acting on behalf of a company are identified using the Finnish Authenticator Identification Service.
In a situation where an application to the mandate service granted by officials has been made, but the application is still being processed and it is necessary to be able to log in to the e-services system without delay, FIN-FSA identification service must be used for identification.
Foreign users authenticating as private person and who do not have a Finnish personal identification code, the FIN-FSA identification service must be used for identification.
