How to become a BankID subscriber?
BankID subscribers are subscribed identifiers (banks) and subscribed service providers.
To become a BankID subscriber, an institution needs:
- to submit the Application of Intent of Accession to the NBU BankID System and respective documents
- to receive the decision of the NBU BankID System Council on approval of the accession to the system
- to enter into the Accession Agreement to the system
- to set communication between subscriber nodes with the central node of BankID

Please note, subscribed identifiers and subscribed service providers use BankID on commercial terms. Thus, subscribed identifiers (banks) have the option to monetize data transmission to subscribed service providers. Payment for user identification is charged directly to the subscribed service provider.
Are personal data secured in BankID?
Yes, BankID identification is safe for users. BankID does not store personal data of users.
All user data is transmitted encrypted by BankID affixing a qualified electronic signature or a qualified electronic seal of the bank.
Only the personal data owner can initiate transmission of this data from the subscribed identifier to the subscribed service provider. Identification data shall not be transmitted to third parties without the user’s (data owner) consent.
