The ultimate goal is to reduce processing time via , among others, the following changes:
- Simplification of forms
- Consolidation of related forms
- Creation of new forms to support existing and new services
- Enrichment with explanatory notes
- Ensuring the validity of the submitted data by introducing a solemn declaration
- Customization of the forms in PDF editable form
