Regulation issued by Finnish Customs on the electronic procedure and data verification applicable when providing data to the bank and payment accounts register

The data provided to the bank and payment accounts register shall be submitted electronically. The below-mentioned communication practices and interfaces that conform to Finnish Customs’ specifications shall be followed when providing the data.

When contacting Finnish Customs through the bank and payment accounts register, a server certificate shall be used to identify the clients electronically and for establishing the integrity and origin of the data. For this purpose, one may use the certificate provided by the Population Register Centre for authentication for an online service. Alternatively, one may use a server certificate of a high assurance level that is set out in Regulation (EU) No 910/2014 and mentioned in a list published in accordance with Article 9 of the said Regulation. In such a case, one may use the qualified certificate for website authentication referred to in the Regulation. In both of the abovementioned alternatives, the Business ID or VAT number of the identified organisation must be provided in the SerialNumber field regarding the certificate subject or, alternatively, in the OrganizationIdentifier field regarding the certificate subject. The data providers shall obtain their certificates themselves.
