The use permit service provides a way to apply for use permits to registers and other sources containing individual-level health and welfare data for scientific research or other legal purposes. Authorities can use the service to process the application.

The service operates on the single-window or one stop principle: the different permits and statements for one project can use one application for multiple authorities. The service also allows users to submit data requests. This makes the application processes more flexible, expediting the use of the data.

Public statistics are collected for the services regarding the types of projects the register information and other data is used, and to what extent.
The use permit service is still in development. This section will describe the service in detail once it has been launched.
