Articles 40 to 46 of Law 39/2015, of 1 October, of the Common Administrative Procedure of the Public Administrations regulates the regime of notifications of resolutions and administrative acts.

Notifications shall preferably be issued in electronic form and, in all cases, where the interested party is obliged to receive them through this channel. Those subject to Article 14 of said Law are obliged to receive notifications in electronic form.

Interested parties not obliged to receive electronic notifications may decide and communicate at any time to the Public Administration, using the models established to that effect, that subsequent notifications are issued in paper form.

According to regulations, the Administrations may establish the obligation to issue notifications in electronic format for specific procedure and for certain groups of natural persons for whom, based on their financial or technical capabilities, professional commitments or other reasons, it is accredited that they have access to and availability of the necessary electronic means.

In addition, the interested party may identify an electronic device and/or email address which shall serve for sending notifications of a purely informative nature.

The systems provided for by Law 39/2015, of 1 October, for notifications by electronic means are by appearance at the electronic office of the Administration or Agency acting, through the single authorised electronic address, or through both systems, as provided by each Administration or Agency. Likewise, interested parties may access notifications from the Administration's Electronic General Access Point, which will function as an access portal.

All notifications that are made on paper must be made available to the interested party at the electronic headquarters of the Administration or Agency acting so that they can access the content of the same on a voluntary basis. When the interested party accesses the content of the notification at the electronic site, he/she will be offered the possibility that the rest of the notifications may be made by electronic means.
