Self-certifications According to Article 15 of Law 183/2011, in force since January 1, 2012, Public Administrations and Public Service Managers can no longer request or accept certificates produced by other public offices from private individuals. In these cases the citizen must self-certify the possession of the required requisites. Public Administrations and Public Service Managers (including Orders) are obliged to accept self-certifications, under penalty of violation of official duties. Moreover, the decree-law no. 76/2020, (converted into law no. 120/2020) introduced a novelty (to articles 2, paragraph 1, and 71, paragraph 4, of Presidential Decree no. 445/2000) on declarations in lieu of certification, which are a documental simplification measure not only in relations between citizens and public administrations or public service providers, but also in relations with private individuals. Individuals are required to accept the substitute declaration and may request, with the consent of the declarant, a check from the administration responsible for issuing the relevant certification, which is required to provide written confirmation, also by means of computer or electronic tools, of the correspondence of what has been declared with the results of the data in its possession.
