The majority of the doctrine agrees that the code that must be published and informed to the public, in the case of local entities, is the DIR3 code. Despite the fact that according to Law 39/2015, of October 1, on common administrative procedure of public administrations, what must be unambiguously identified is the organ, center or administrative unit to which a request is addressed , in the case of local bodies this code corresponds de facto to their identification, that is to say, to that of the town hall.
In order to be more proactive, it would be convenient if the forms were preloaded with this code. The ultimate goal is for it not to be a burden to those concerned.
Article 66. Initiation requests .
"1. The requests made must contain:
g) Organ, center or administrative unit to which it is addressed and its corresponding identification code.
The registration assistance offices are obliged to provide the interested parties with the identification code if the interested party does not know it. Also, the public administrations must maintain and update in the corresponding electronic headquarters a list with the valid identification codes."
