According to Law 39/2015, of 1 October, on common administrative procedure of public administrations, when the Administration responsible for a specific procedure has expressly established specific forms for submitting applications or procedures, the interested parties they are obliged to use them (Article 66.6).
So much so that “ documents and information whose special regime establishes another form of presentation are not considered to have been submitted to the register ” (article 16.8).
It should be borne in mind that the bodies that process through EACAT may be considered interested parties in the administrative procedure and, therefore, the above provisions may also apply to them (depending on the criteria of the responsible Administration of the service).
In this sense, EACAT user bodies can define specific services to facilitate electronic inter-administrative processing, including the forms for the different procedures that make up the service, which are included in the EACAT Catalog of Procedures. However, when there is no specific procedure in the Catalog, the EACAT user bodies have at their disposal the generic submission, to send the documentation / information that is to be sent to the destination body.
For this reason, it is recommended that you make sure that no specific procedure or mandatory use form has been enabled before sending the generic submission.
