The Ministry of Health announced the availability of the Electronic Disability Certificate (Cedis) through the Disability Information Subsystem (Sidis), which allows people with disabilities to obtain this document electronically.
Cedis are issued by Sidis, part of the National Health Information System (Sinais), which is intended for registration and disability checks. This subsystem includes sociodemographic data, evaluation of activity and participation, identification of disabilities, and environmental barriers.
Process of obtaining Cedis
- Access the Electronic Disability Certificate (Cedis) format through the given link.
- The Cedis disability assessment and issuance centers are responsible for recording the information obtained from the assessment process of the person with a disability. This should be done by medical professionals or persons authorized by the health authority.
- The document will include relevant information, such as the Unique Population Registration Code (CURP), percentage of disability, technical aids used, type of support, name and electronic signature of the medical professional or authorized person, and the certificate’s validity.
- The authenticity and validity of Cedis can be verified by verifying the two-dimensional barcode (QR) present on the certificate.
Important considerations to get Cedis
In its statement, the Ministry of Health of the Federal Government specified that medical professionals or persons with authorization from the health authority can issue this electronic document.
In addition, those responsible, managers, and users of Sidis must avoid modification, unauthorized transmission, and unauthorized access to Cedis information, guaranteeing its careful management.
The reprint of the Cedis is obtained at an assessment center and delivered to the person to whom it is issued, or their support, guardian, legal representative, or anyone exercising parental authority.
Once the cedis are issued, they can only be changed in the “person” section and not in the valuation made.
