Certipost – Your partner for bringing trust into the electronic world. Certipost is a specialist in secure document and information exchange over the Internet. This involves digital identities, electronic commitments and electronic document exchange.

At the eGov event “Lift-off towards Open Government”, Certipost presents its solution for creating and inserting electronic signatures.

For easily creating digital signatures with the same legal value as a handwritten signature, we have developed e‑Signing.

This web application enables the user to sign an electronic document in just a few mouse clicks by means of his eID or his professional digital certificate. In addition to this ready-to-use online tool, we also develop integrated total solutions for digital signatures which answer the specific needs of companies and organisations. From impact and risk analysis to technical implementation and training sessions, we are there to assist them. 

From the start, we have been closely involved in the Belgian electronic identity card project. We were selected by the Belgian government as the supplier of the digital certificates on the eID. In our online shop at www.certipost.com/webshop, we also offer digital certificates which prove the professional identity of the user on the internet. A professional certificate contains business information such as company name and job title. It allows business users to secure their electronic communications and to sign documents in their professional capacity – and not in their personal capacity. With their digital certificate they can also gain secure, easy access to a wide range of e-government applications such as Intervat, FinProf, VenSoc or WebNCTS.

Our other main activity is providing services for secure electronic document exchange and archiving. We deliver total solutions for both incoming and outgoing information flows, on paper as well as electronic. We offer our customers several formulas to fit all budgets: from a free, secure mailbox to fully automated document exchange with back-office integration. Every day, we electronically deliver thousands of invoices, payslips and other types of business documents to the right person or organisation via our CertiONE e-communication platform. Today, already 85,000 companies and 520,000 private individuals are connected to our platform. Thanks to roaming agreements and partnerships, we reach over 100,000 companies throughout Europe.

Certipost was founded in 2002 and is a subsidiary of bpost. Our headquarters are based in Aalst and we have an office in the Netherlands.

non-profits and the private sector, work together to share the cost of enhanced capabilities. The
larger the community that shares the applications, the more potential benefits derived by each
participant. Improvements to the software may be provided or funded by any organization.  All
participating organizations benefit from any one’s contributions at no additional cost and with no
restrictions.
The objective is to deliver tools for public administrations and on-line web services to citizens most
effectively and efficiently by reducing or eliminating the duplication of effort between localities
through sharing and collaboration. CommunesPlone enable local authorities to benefit from greater
technological independence and together build tools that are truly suited to their own needs.



PLONEMEETING 

 

OBJECTIVES

PloneMeeting is intended to be used by local or regional authorities to manage

their official meetings.

But genericity is built-in: functionalities and appearance may be tailored to the

needs of almost any decision-making organism that needs to keep track and

communicate its decisions and associated documents.

 

PloneMeeting takes it power, simplicity and adequation from the way is was

built: within PloneGov, a wide community of users, business analysts and

programmers joined their efforts to make a product that could easily be shared

and deployed in many organizations that have common needs but also

specificities.

  • Application 2 :  WEB SITE FOR LOCAL AUTHORITIES

     

    OBJECTIVES

    Plone allows to quickly set up a website ready to use. The CommunesPlone 's

    website template was adapted to the needs of local authorities.

    A town willing to launch a new website could reuse the model proposed by

    CommunesPlone and power it with its specific content and design. It requires

    no technical knowledge.

    Dozens of municipalities already have a site based on this common model.

    A list of these municipalities is available on the project website

    http://www.communesplone.org/le-projet/les-membres

     

    MAIN FEATURES

    The site is organized around a tool for content management (CMS) of the

    most modern today. Very friendly, it allows people without technical

    knowledge to add, delete or change pages directly via the website.

    The feeding of the site can be organized with great flexibility: centralized

    power (the webmaster), decentralized (for services) with validation,

    decentralized without validation by a few people ...

    "Sub-sites" are possible: the organization, association or vendors of the

    town can supply their own pages in the communal site, with a menu of

    their own and secure access.

    An on-line services module allows citizens to carry their official

    documents online, authenticating via their electronic identity card

    (optional). The town can easily edit or add new forms.

    A geolocation module gives the possibility to illustrate with dynamic

    maps the precise location of government buildings, schools, associations,

    businesses, ...

    The site accepts co-branding with the sites of the Walloon Region

    (Belgium). Thus, the municipality can enrich the pages of its site with

    content from the portal wallonie.be (among others).

    The site template is not static. Each municipality can change colors,

    logos, designs, size and text font.

    The site is optimized for best referenced by search engines such as

    Google, Yahoo, etc..

    The site complies with web standards and accessibility standards for

    disabled people.

    The site is entirely built with open source softwaret. Plone, the basic site,

    has a wide community of public and private actors in Belgium and

    abroad. With a Plone site, there is no dependence on a single actor.

    Add-ons are very numerous photo albums, newsletter, forum, directory

    of associations and traders, etc..

Wallonia and the French Community

 

With in mind the principle that all users of public services should have efficient and flexible access to all administrative services, while avoiding redundancy, the Walloon Government and the Government of the French Community of Belgium have adopted for the period 2010 – 2014 a program of Administrative Simplification and Common e-Government, called “Let’s simplify together”. Both Governments and their administrations will closely cooperate to implement this program on the basis of a common methodology, a concentration of resources, priority actions and a regular follow-up of the results.

Wallonie et Communauté française

 

Partant du principe que tous les usagers des services publics doivent pouvoir

accéder aux services administratifs de manière souple et efficace, en évitant

les redondances inutiles, les gouvernements wallon et de la Communauté

française ont adopté pour la période 2010-2014 un plan de Simplification

administrative et d'e-Gouvernement commun :

le Plan "Ensemble Simplifions".

Les deux Gouvernements et leurs administrations collaborent étroitement

à la mise en oeuvre de ce plan sur la base d'une méthodologie commune,

d'une concentration des moyens, d'une priorisation des actions et d'un suivi

régulier des résultats.

  • Application 1 : epSOS Patient Summary

Two distinct types of use cases for cross-border communication have been identified:

  • An occasional visitor, for example someone on holiday or attending a business meeting. The distinguishing characteristic is that this type of visit is irregular, infrequent, and may not be repeated. This is a type of incidental encounter where the healthcare professional may have no previous record of the person seeking care.
  • A routine case, for example someone who lives in one country but works in another. The distinguishing characteristic is that this type of visit is regular, frequent, and the person seeking care may be accustomed to using services in the country where he or she works as a matter of personal convenience. This is a type of occasional situation where the healthcare professional may have some information available from previous encounters.

Patient Summary

Storyboard: A 66-year-old retiree from Germany is a known insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus patient. While on vacation in Italy, the patient loses his antidiabetic medication. He reports to a nearby hospital to request a new insulin prescription.
Possible answer from PS: The emergency room doctor refers to the Patient Summary to receive information on the appropriate insulin type and dosage, and issues a prescription for the corresponding brand names available on the Italian market.
 

  • Application 2 : ePrescription

Within the cross-border prescription area there are two basic generic use cases:

  • A patient needs medicine that is already prescribed in the home country when in another country. In this case the pharmacist should be able to electronically access the prescription from the same eHealth interface used for prescriptions ordered in the local country. When medicine is dispatched, the system should notify the home country node of the foreign patient about the dispensed drugs.
  • A medical professional decides to prescribe medicine to a visiting patient from another country. To assist the medical professional to make the best decision on the pharmaceutical strategy to be used, the patient's medical and pharmaceutical history from her home country will be available through the patient summary. When the electronic prescription is finalized, a copy of the prescription will also be sent to the patient's national node for inclusion in the national medication summary.

ePrescription

Storyboard: A patient from Andalusia (Spain) is spending a one-month vacation in Denmark. He suffers from a chronic illness and receives long-term treatment. However, according to regulations in Andalusia, he cannot collect, with certain exceptions, more than one box of the same medicine at a time. After three weeks in Denmark, he runs out of the medicine and goes to a pharmacy to purchase a new box. The dispenser consults the information from Spain to find out whether a prescription for the medication is currently available.
Answer from ePrescription: The prescription is available - the patient receives the medicine. Information about the dispensed medicine is sent to Andalusia to update the related prescription (eDispensation).

Federal Computer Crime Unit

The Federal Computer Crime Unit - FCCU - is part of the Direction for economical and

financial crime of the Federal judicial police of Belgium. As a central unit the FCCU

ensures strategic as well as conceptual and operational missions.

Firstly the FCCU gives computer and internet forensic support to the national investigation 

units that combat organized financial crime and corruption.  The FCCU also supports the

Regional Computer Crime Units for investigations in complex environments and networks.

Secondly the FCCU supports the combat of different forms of cybercrime : internet fraud,

e-payment fraud and attacks on critical ICT infrastructure. 

As such the FCCU ensures a 24/7 cybercrime contact point for national and international

police requests for computer forensic assistance and cybercrime investigations. 

Another important mission of the FCCU is to collect and analyze intelligence on the

different forms of cybercrime and to produce reports on crime, threats and vulnerabilities

for the government authorities. The FCCU also manages the www.ecops.be website

that serves as internet contact point for cybercrimes that are related to Belgium. 

For this FCCU works together with the Federal Public Service for Economical affairs

and Child Focus. It is also responsible for the specialized trainings for CCU investigators

and detectives and helps with the magistrates' training sessions in this area. 

Several FCCU members participate actively in different national and international

workgroups (Interpol, Europol, EC) and in scientific projects that have a more secure

cyberspace as a goal. As such, FCCU members are often advisors to the government

when it concerns cyber security.

ASA - The Administrative Simplification Agency

 

 

The Administrative Simplification Agency (ASA) started operation in June 1999 with the mission to drive the policy for administrative complexity imposed on businesses and later on citizens. The role of ASA is also to encourage and co-ordinate simplification initiatives across administrations.

 

The ASA is an agency in the Chancellery of the Prime Minister. The ASA’s tasks are formally defined as:

  • Making proposals for simplification, stimulating and co-ordinating initiatives, carrying out studies;
  • Elaborating and implementing a methodology for measuring administrative costs imposed by regulations on businesses and SMEs;
  • Organising co-operation between the different federal administrations;
  • Elaborating an administrative impact note (the Kafka test);
  • Organising dialogue on administrative simplification with all levels of authority, representative partners among self-employed and SMEs as well as with European institutions and international organisations.

 

The ASA has also taken on the following tasks:

  • Providing legal guidance and co-ordination for several e-Government projects;
  • Managing the Kafka contact point (which collects suggestions for administrative simplification);
  • Establishing a dialogue with administrations over simplification projects for citizens.

Application 1: e-Depot

 

The “e-Depot” system, which allows transactions via a notary to be processed electronically, was implemented in March 2007. The transformation of a paper-based process into an electronic process has reduced the time needed for completing the formalities for registering the creation of a company, from up to 56 days in 2004 to 3 days.

 

Several minutes after the deposit, the notary receives the new company registration number which can then be electronically activated by the starting entrepreneur in any of the ten accredited enterprise offices in the country, and the new company can commence operations.

 

This initiative was a co-operative effort between the Royal Federation of Belgian Notaries, the Administrative Simplification Agency, FedICT (the federal ICT agency), the Home Office (responsible for the civil register), the Ministry of Economy (in charge of the Belgian Public Cross Roads Database of Enterprises) and the Ministry of Justice (responsible for both the Belgian Law Gazette in which company statutes are published and for the clerk of the court).

Application 2:Service Directive

 

In the Procedure guide on Business.belgium.be  (http://business.belgium.be/en/procedures/), you will find information about the procedures and requirements incumbent upon Belgian and foreign businesses wishing to set up in Belgium or carry out temporary activities here.

 

Initially, the priority has been to include useful information for services covered by the Services Directive (2006/123/EC), but in the future we intend to provide information for all businesses, whether or not they are affected by the Services Directive.

 

This tool, a customized CMS (content management system), was developed in partnership between the various levels of power that impose requirements on businesses in Belgium: Federal Public Services, Flemish Region, Brussels-Capital Region, Walloon Region, German-speaking Community, …

 

Application 3: Telemarc

 

Telemarc is an online application through which public services, subject to public procurement laws, seek information directly in authentic sources of information, namely:

  • Crossroads bank for enterprises,
  • Crossroads bank of Social security,
  • Tax and debt database at the Department of Finance,
  • Annual accounts database at the National bank.

 

Companies participating in tender processes are, as a result, exempted from providing this information, which leads to enormous reductions in administrative burdens.

Fluid mobility of goods and people within the EU is an important driving force to a sustainable and competitive economy.

Every mode of transport needs to be optimized and be environmentally friendly, safe and economical.

The Presidency is convinced that co-modality will lead to an optimal and more sustainable use of transport, ensuring effective mobility and a reliable protection for people and the environment.

To achieve these goals, several initiatives were taken to develop:

  • the policies and of the methodology for an integrated transport network and the management of freight logistics
  • to pass the external costs generated by different modes of transport onto the users
  • encourage the use of transport modes other than road transport
  • an electronic data exchange system on traffic offences
  • means on harmonizing aviation safety regulations
  • Innovation in the transport sector by implementing the European Satellite Navigation system
  • Means of reducing CO2 and harmful substance emissions, local and noise pollution.

More info:

http://www.holstcentre.com/en/PartneringinResearch/SharedPrograms/TechnologyIntegration/BodyAreaNetworks.aspx

http://www2.imec.be/be_en/research/human-biomedical-electronics.html

Within the Human++ program, Imec and Holst Centre develop solutions for an efficient and better healthcare. Examples are intelligent body area networks with wireless sensors. These will be more comfortable, easier to use, and give better quality results than current systems. They will allow home and ambulatory monitoring of people. This will greatly increase the comfort of patients and is a cost- and time-efficient alternative for current EEG monitoring systems. In addition, home monitoring results in daily life measurements that are impossible to measure in a clinical environment.

The miniaturized and wireless 8-channel EEG monitoring systempowered by body heat and solar cells is suited for remote monitoring of patients in their daily environment, resulting in more natural readings and greatly increasing the patient’s comfort.

 The wireless ECG necklace can be used for permanent screening of people at risk of cardiovascular disorders, for therapy compliance and for follow-up of people under cardiovascular treatment. It may also be used to monitor the heart of fit & healthy people, for example during sports events.

TheECG patch monitors cardiac activity during daily life, e.g. during training or follow-up of cardiac patients. Placed on the arm or on the leg, the same system can also be used to monitor muscle activity (EMG). Results can be sent to your mobile phone.

Pulse Oxy watch. This is a wireless pulse oxymeter for non-invasive measurement of pulse and blood oxygen. It is powered by a thermoelectric generator using the person’s body heat. The result is full energy autonomy.

The implantable bladder pressure sensor is a medical implant integrated in flexible packaging.

INFOPOLE Cluster TIC is the Walloon network which brings together professionals in Information and Communication Technology in order to promote business and innovation through partnership. The cluster is composed of more than 160 members and includes small and big enterprises, universities, research laboratories and others ICT actors.

 

The ambition of INFOPOLE Cluster TIC is to take part in the construction of specific answers to the challenges met by the ICT actors: changing technologies, increasing complexity of projects, shortage of skills... To structure the sector, to put the actors in relation, to increase the synergies, to strengthen the economic and technological groundings of companies such are the goals of INFOPOLE Cluster TIC.

 

The original character of the action of INFOPOLE Cluster TIC is to initiate, coordinate and accompany partnerships around projects opportunities. The services offered can be gathered in 3 categories:

  • Fostering contacts and interactions
  • Dissemination of business and innovation opportunities through actions aiming at creating a virtual place of market;
  • Support to partnership & projects development.

 

The actual strategy of the ICT clusters is to focus on the creation of a partnership dynamic structured around priority segments and niches. This dynamic aims to implement and to animate a collective action between the ICT suppliers and ICT users through the setting-up and the animation of Business & Innovation Platforms (BIP). These platforms will contribute to stimulate the innovation, the co-operation and growth by the design and the development of innovative products and services that are meeting the user's needs. The thematics of this segmented approach (eHealth, Intelligent Transport Systems, Green IT and e-Gov)results from recommendations made by a Task Force which have analyze the supply and the demand to define the priority technologies and markets.

The Smart Cities project is creating an innovation network between governments and academic

partners in the North Sea Region that is leading to excellence in the development and take-up

of e-services and e-government, and which is setting new standards for e-service delivery across

the whole North Sea region.

The Smart Cities partnership is made up of thirteen partners from six countries in the North Sea

region. All of the government partners are leading cities and regions with considerable

experience in developing and delivering e-Government. Project partners want to improve their

e-service-delivery by rethinking the basics of service delivery, by changing their innovation

methodology, by transferring their best practices to other project partners, and by engaging

with academic and research partners from the very beginning of this process.

The project aims to develop an understanding which e-services services work best and why.

It will:

• facilitate the transfer of e-Government successes across national borders,

• identify and support the real transformational impacts of this transfer of good practices

on local government service delivery,

• equip decision makers with the knowledge and ambition to continue to develop

innovative approaches to deliver e-enabled public services; and

• integrate national authorities in these efforts to deliver enhanced services and

approaches to e-government services.

At the European level, the project will support the creation and growth of communities

of practice across the North Sea Region by building organisational commitments to

inter-regional government service sharing and by developing their capacity to deliver

these changes. Smart Cities is partly funded by the Interreg IVB North Sea Region

Programme of the European Union. The North Sea Region Programme 2007–2013

works with regional development projects around the North Sea.

Promoting transnational cooperation, the Programme aims to make the region a

better place to live, work and invest in.

In this exhibition, you will be able to see and experience the results of

the Smart Cities project.

The city of Kortrijk

The city of Kortrijk lies in the south of the Belgian province West-Flanders, at the Leie River, and counts  75.000 inhabitants.  It is situated 25 km in the nord-east of the French city “Lille” (“Rijsel” in Dutch) with whom it forms together with the Belgian city “Tournai” (“Doornik”) the Eurodistrict Urban Area Rijsel-Kortrijk-Doornik with approximately 1.900.000 inhabitants. The city is known as “Groeninghe city” or the “City of the Golden Spurs” because of the “Battle of the Gulden Spurs” which took place on Juli 11th, 1302. In the 19th and 20th century it was an important centre of flax industry and still today there is a lot of textile industry. The last 30 years there is a lot more diversification in economic activity, from supply to automotive industry to electronica. The last ten years the city focuses on also on design.

 

Customer Contact Centre “1777”

 

“1777”merges the three existing customer contact phone numbers in Kortrijk into one joint service that uses one single free telephone number – 1777 – in order to simplify access to city services and increase customer satisfaction.  The city aims at gradually introducing this number as the telephone contact point for most city services. As the Flemish government’s free phone number is 1700, Kortrijk has chosen to use 1777.
It is an example of a so-called multi-channel project : customers call to get information. The contact centre uses the kortrijk website to give citizens as soon as possible the right information. Via the one stop shop people can obtain the necessarities documents they want. It brings several existing teams together and facilitates other local improvement work – such as developing service cataloguesand improving product descriptions.  Its uses existing e-service tools, such as the service-catalogue on the municipal website, software for registration of incidents, process-description tools, and web forms.

 

MY Page and the contact database will also support “1777”. The latter are still being developped.

 

My Page

Cities deliver a wide range of services to citizens, businesses and visitors through a wide range of channels. MyPage is a means of bringing services to citizens through personalised and customised municipal websites.


Via “MijnGemeente(my municipality) ” we want, in collaboration with the intercommunale Leiedal,  to personalise the information a user sees when  logging into a municipal website by re-using the personal information that users have previously submitted to the municipality. Users can register on the website, providing their name and address : this information will then be used to automatically fill in municipal web forms. Users can also make specific service choices or identify relevant services.

Contact database

Using correct contact data is a pre-requisite for successful customer relationship management. Municipalities struggle with this, as they often use a wide range of stand alone applications and databases that use customer contact data, but which do not share data with other municipal systems.
Via Smart Cities we aim at creating a shared contact database, where the accuracy of the data is assured either by linking it to an authoritative data source, or where the task of maintaining the accuracy of the data is delegated to the data’s owner.

Via this database we aim at  setting in place an integrated database system that will evolve into a real midware solution. It is driven by the need for more integrated working within the municipality, with the on- going development of customer contact centres and unified contact systems in the municipality.
 

INFINITE NETWORK POSSIBILITIES

 

Wi-Fi network

The city of Kortrijk is rolling out a Wi-Fi network both inside and outside their main buildings and infrastructure (some 30 locations). Besides offering internet access to visitors to city buildings (for meetings, etc), this will evolve into a new channel for service delivery. The KULAK university campus (part of the university of Leuven) and two technical university campuses (Katho and Howest) will be linked with the city network, first via EDUROAM, and then through a common ‘student-in-kortrijk’ SSID on all hotspot networks. The linking of 4 existing Wi-Fi networks offers a quick win for everyone, and is not only a method for delivering internet access, but is also a way of guiding students to a dedicated portal about the city of Kortrijk.


Information screens

The city of Kortrijk is an important ‘provider’ of infrastructure and rooms/premises that can be used by cultural, sporting, youth and other associations in the city. Kortrijk wants to streamline communication channels, and to offer associations free promotion for their activities. To do this it will roll out a network of information screens in city premises, which will display information from city’s reservation system to visitors via these narrowcasting screens. Information on the use of city premises will be streamlined and organised more efficiently. The city’s narrowcasting network will provide at least two information screens in every city building that is used by visitors.

LEDwalls

Local cultural groups in Kortrijk spend considerable amounts of time and money promoting their activities by making, distributing and then removing a wide range of posters and flyers. The city wants to explore how narrowcasting can help reduce these costs and make advertising more efficient following the purchase of 5 LEDwalls. These large electronic displays are a visually stunning medium that will replace paper posters to advertise cultural events and activities. In a second phase we will investigate how to make these LEDwalls (and by extension all narrowcasting screens) more interactive.
 

I-points

Kortrijk’s tourist office is in a splendid location in a beautifully restored historic building, but it is not an easy place for tourists to find. The city intends to install digital interactive kiosks in 5 strategic places across the city. These ‘I-point’ kiosks will provide information using state of the art technology to three target groups: tourists and visitors to the city, students that go to college in the city, and visitors to the Kortrijk Xpo.  At the moment there are some 50 existing kiosks in the central library.

Overall, governments are the largest buyer in the European Union, but they are lagging behind major industries in electronic data exchange with suppliers. Government purchases in the European Union account for around 16 % of GDP, which is equal to 1,500 Billion Euro, however

 

 

  • Overall capabilities of governments to handle key processes with their suppliers such as tenders, orders, delivery notes, catalogues, invoices, or payments is lagging behind other major industries.

  • The lack of common standards for electronic data exchange is considered an obstacle for companies to participate without barriers in public procurement processes

EU member states have expressed a political will to change public procurement significantly. The Manchester ministerial declaration of 24 November 2005 for example defines that “by 2010 all public administrations across Europe will have the capability of carrying out 100 % of their procurement electronically and at least 50 % of public procurement above the EU public procurement threshold will be carried out electronically.” The PEPPOL project is strongly supporting this target.

Vision and Objectives

 

vision.gifThe broader vision of PEPPOL is that any company (incl. SMEs) in the EU can communicate electronically with any EU governmental institution for all procurement processes. The objective of the PEPPOL (Pan-European Public eProcurement On-Line) project is to set up a pan-European pilot solution that, conjointly with existing national solutions, facilitates EU-wide interoperable public eProcurement. The vision of the PEPPOL project is that any company and in particular SMEs in the EU can communicate electronically with any European governmental institution for the entire procurement process. The final outcome of PEPPOL will be an interoperational environment build upon national systems and infrastructures supporting the full cycle of eProcurement activities.

The pilots to be developed in  PEPPOL will support any economic  operator in the EU and the European  Economic Area (EEA) to respond to any  published public tender notice  electronically and to govern the entire  procurement process. Thereby PEPPOL  will focus on the engagement and participation of SME companies to public eProcurement.

What should be understood under ‘alarm systems registration desk’? It is a database managed

by the FPS Home Affairs that collects certain data relating to alarm systems.

These user-entered data are stored in this database and are accessible to all police zones.

This information system for the exchange of information was given the name

ALINE (ALarm INformation Exchange).

 

Why an electronic registration?

This alarm systems registration desk was created with several goals in mind. 

The legislator’s primary goal is to create a uniform national database that stores

information on the alarm systems installed in Belgium, so that the quality of the

interventions can be improved. An essential condition for this is that the police

have an accurate address, understand the gravity of the risk, have prior information

about the nature of the risk and are prepared to, through the alarm reporter, collect

operationally useful information.

This measure was introduced to provide the police services with access to accurate

information in the event of an intervention following a report of an alarm, as it is

important that the police know as quickly as possible the exact location where the

alarm was activated. The more details they have on the location, the sooner they will

be at the spot and will be able to guarantee security. The data entered into the database

will allow the police to act rapidly and efficiently in case of danger.

The goal is also to lessen the administrative burden on the citizen (for example, for users

who are members of an alarm central the burden of responsibility for (un)registering their

alarm systems will from now be on the central). The user is no longer obliged to direct

him- or herself to the local police to make a report and to change his or her information,

from now on this will need to be done via the website www.policeonweb.be.

This new provision also aims to reduce the administrative workload of the police services,

which will have direct access to a daily updated database. This way, the police will no longer

busy itself with the daily management of the registration of alarm systems.
