Interested parties have the right to know the status of the proceedings in which they have the status of interested parties and to access data and documentation of the file.

Therefore, from the electronic file manager of each Public Administration, it will be necessary to make an automatic publication in the citizen folder of the data and documents to which the interested person must have access. This publication must include the anonymisation of personal data where applicable.

A good practice would be to provide in the workflow of electronic files, a state of "publication", where the processors should verify and, if necessary, correct the data to be published, as well as select and / or anonymize the documents that they would be published in the citizen folder automatically.
