The e-NOTUM service begins the steps to allow citizens to be addressed with their heard name

The felt name is the name by which a person wants to be called according to their gender identity, different from their birth name.

By virtue of the Law 11/2014, of October 10, to guarantee the rights of lesbians, gays, bisexuals, transgenders and intersexuals and to eradicate homophobia, biphobia and transphobia, the e-NOTUM service allows reporting the full name of the recipients of the notifications (in addition to the legal name) so that the user bodies can address them by this name.

It is an optional field via EACAT screens that will soon be included in communications via SMS and e-mail in cases where it is informed, replacing the person's legal name. In the case of users via integration, it will be possible to report this field in the new version of messaging that we are working on.

In any case, however, the identification on the e-NOTUM citizenship portal must be done with the legal name, which will also appear in the evidence of the practice, in accordance with the provisions of the common administrative procedure regulations.
