Username and password no longer sufficient for eHerkenning

This information is provided by

Netherlands Enterprise Agency, RVO

Effective date: 1 July 2021

What changes?

Do you use eHerkenning to login with government organisations? And do you only use a username and password to do so? You will only be able to use an eHerkenning key with security level EH2 up to EH4.

The lowest security level EH1 will be discontinued. You can no longer use security level EH1. Higher security levels will remain.

Secure login

eHerkenning currently has security levels EH1 through EH4. Level EH1, logging in with username and password is the oldest. However, this level no longer meets the (international) security standards.

For whom?

  • entrepreneurs logging in with government services

When?

This change in law will come into force on 1 July 2021.

Please note: Do you want to apply for the Reimbursement Fixed Costs (TVL) for Q1 2021? From 12 April 2021 you will need at least eHerkenning level 3. If you use DigiD to apply, nothing will change.
