Extension of EDS online for legal entities Printable versionLast update: 21.11.2022
Executing the function of one`s e-signature during obtainment of various online services (for instance, obtainment of abstracts or participation in public procurement), digital signature (DS) contains confidential information about its owner. Therefore, DS`s validity should be extended every year for safety reasons. Doing it, a citizen acknowledges that certificates were not lost and haven`t been acquired by an unauthorized party.
Notifications on the expiration of the EDS
RK NCC registration certificates issued for a file system is valid for 1 year. RK NCC registration certificates issued for key information carriers (ID card, Kaztoken, eToken, аKey, jaCarta) are valid for 3 years.The system of the National Certifying Center of the Republic of Kazakhstan implemented the automatic sending of two types of notifications on the upcoming expiration of the EDS with a proposal to extend it online.
- Multiple email notifications – 1 month before, 2 weeks before, 7 days before. To receive these notifications, you must specify your e-mail in the personal account in the NCC RK.
- SMS notification 10 days before the date of expiry of the EDS. SMS comes to the phone number registered in the Mobile Citizens Database, i.e. to the one that is attached to the user in the eGov Personal Account.
