Since the publication of Law no. 7/2007, of February 5 (no. 2 of article 5), it is forbidden to reproduce the citizen's card by photocopy or any other means without the consent of the holder, except in the cases expressly Provided by law or by decision of a judicial authority.
With the elimination of this practice we intend to combat cases of identity theft and even cloning citizen cards.
If you are required to copy your citizenship card, you should remind the entity that, according to the provisions of Law no. 7/2007, of February 5, this practice is illegal if this requirement is not provided for in a law .
In any case, the citizen will always have recourse to the presentation of a complaint in the "book of complaints" of the entity that requires this copy.
