The Chamber of Deputies approved the proposal that establishes the CPF number as the only general registration number (RG) throughout the country. The project was approved on Wednesday night (21) and will be sent for presidential sanction.
The text establishes that the CPF must appear in the records and documents of public bodies, in the civil registry of natural persons or in identification documents issued by professional councils.
Thus, as of the enactment of the future law, the CPF will be used as a number in certificates (birth, marriage and death), as identification before the INSS (NIT), in the work card, in the CNH and others.
The expected duration is 12 months from the date of publication, so that agencies and entities can adjust the systems and procedures for serving citizens in order to adopt the CPF as an identification number.
There will also be a period of 24 months for bodies and entities to make changes to the systems and databases to exchange information with each other from the CPF.
