The signal should contain the full name and address of the citizen or organisation where it comes from, nature of the signal, date and signature. Signals submitted electronically are treated in the same way as written ones. Only a signal lodged using the present form, authenticated with the electronic signature of the sender, shall be considered duly completed. According to Art. 13, para. 1 of the Electronic Document and Electronic Signature Act, an electronic signature is any information in electronic form, added or logically connected to an electronic statement, to establish its authorship.
The signal you submit may be a scanned copy of a document, signed with a qualified e-signature, or an electronic document in one of the following formats: *.doc, *.docx (MS Word), *.xls, *.xlsx (MS Excel), *. pdf (Adobe Acrobat), *.jpg, *.jpeg (images), signed with a qualified e-signature. The electronic document can be signed by means of the used office package or using software for signing, publicly available on the website of the trust service provider.
Signing with an electronic signature is possible in two ways:
Integrated electronic signature: the original file and the signature are bound in one file. The typical file extension is p7m.
Independent electronic signature: the signature accompanies the original file, i.e. you must attach a .zip or .rar archive, covering 2 files - the document and an e-signature. A typical electronic signature file extension is p7s.
The electronically signed signal, in the form of a p7m format file, or the signal accompanied by the e-signature file in p7s format, shall be attached to the form.
The presence of all mandatory elements in the signal shall be a prerequisite for the successful handling of the signal within the statutory deadline. The absence of some of the above data cannot serve as grounds to refuse to accept the signal, but it will delay its handling.
The administrative body shall be entitled to require the sender of the signal to remedy any irregularities within three days.
In the absence of legitimate interest on the part of the applicant, administrative proceedings shall be initiated but the applicant does not receive information about the results thereof.
Please, write to us in Cyrillic!
The official language in the Republic of Bulgaria is Bulgarian (Article 3 of the Constitution of the Republic of Bulgaria). According to Art. 14, para. 1 of the Code of Administrative Procedure Code, administrative proceedings under the Code of Administrative Procedure shall be conducted in Bulgarian. The graphic system of the Bulgarian literary language is the Cyrillic alphabet (Spelling Dictionary).
The Transliteration Act shall apply only to rendition of Bulgarian geographical names, names of historical persons, cultural realities, as well as terms of Bulgarian origin in the relevant scientific area by means of a specially designed version of the Latin alphabet (Art. 1, Para. 3 of the Transliteration Act).
In connection with the above, requests, signals, opinions, proposals, etc., received in the GLI EA electronically, in the composition of which the Latin alphabet or another graphic system other than the Cyrillic alphabet has been used (unless they are written in a language other than Bulgarian) shall be considered as not meeting the requirements of the Code of Administrative Procedure and shall not be handled.
The signal shall contain the following information: the full name and address of the citizen or organisation where it comes from, nature of the signal, date and signature. Signals submitted electronically are treated in the same way as written ones. Only a signal lodged using the present form, authenticated with the electronic signature of the sender (please, see above), or one that has as an attachment the scanned signal, undersigned by the sender, personally, shall be considered duly completed.
In the absence of legitimate interest on the part of the applicant, administrative proceedings shall be initiated but the applicant shall not receive information about the results thereof.
In case of legitimate interest, the sender shall be informed about the requirements as regards the minimum available information (full name and address of the citizen or the organisation where the signal comes from, nature of the latter, date and signature), which is to be provided, and if the sender wishes to be notified of the actions undertaken by the Labour Inspectorate, additional information shall be provided in writing, within three days from lodging the signal, as required by law.
