The ePUAP is the first platform, which aims at electronic implementation of general public tasks. The main task of ePUAP is its use as a platform on which public institutions develop, and then share electronic communication channels with its environment, constituting in particular entrepreneurs, citizens and public institutions, through specified elementary components (platform services.)
The ePUAP is a common infrastructure which allows any public administration unit to provide electronic access to public services for the citizens, entrepreneurs and other public administration units. Public institutions are free to select available system services. They may use a single service of a number of selected ePUAP services.
