What is eHerkenning?

eHerkenning is the digital access key for companies and the government. Just as private persons log in with DigiD to arrange their online municipal affairs, companies can log in via eHerkenning using a user name and password. eHerkenning arranges the digital authentication and checks the digital authorisation. Companies can also authorise their employees to arrange certain affairs via eHerkenning.
