Article 6 of Law 39/2015, of 1 October, provides that each Administration must have a general electronic register of powers of attorney, which must be interoperable with the records of other administrations.

In other words, these registers must guarantee their interconnection and compatibility, as well as the telematic transmission of the applications, writs and communications that are incorporated in them, so that the representations registered in the register of powers of attorney of a AAPP must be able to be consulted by another AAPP that does not use the same record.

The PROXY is the electronic register of powers of attorney of the General State Administration, which allows the registration of representations in order for the proxies to act before the Public Administrations on behalf of third parties.

However, in order to exchange information between REPRESENTA and APODERA (or other similar records), the corresponding Technical Standard for Interoperability of the data model and interoperability conditions of the electronic records of powers of attorney must be approved in advance. is in development.

On the other hand, the aforementioned law also contemplates that the general registers of powers of attorney will not prevent the existence of particular registers in which the powers granted for the performance of specific procedures of the body are registered.

In this sense, 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, of 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.
