Standard on MUFACE: General regulation on administrative mutualism
The fundamental rule that regulates MUFACE is the law, but a Development Regulation was also issued and there are other Royal Decrees and orders regulating significant aspects.
Below we will see the general regulations for MUFACE's activity and competencies. These reflect which civil servants the regulations apply to (those of the Civil Administration), their special contribution, the benefits to which they are entitled such as the healthcare, sanctions, MUFACE organisation, etc
The two most important are the Act and the Regulations
- Act on Social Security for State Civil Servants, approved by Legislative Royal Decree 4/2000, of 23 June.
- General Regulations on Administrative Mutualism, approved by Royal Decree 375/2003 of 28 March
Therefore, we will deal with:
- The General Regulation of Administrative Mutualism. Their scope of application
- Other rules regulating MUFACE.
The Regulation on administrative mutualism, approved by Royal Decree 375/2003, fulfils Act 4/2000 of 23 June, empowering the Minister of Public Administration to dictate or propose to the Government the regulations for applying and developing the law.
The Regulation follows same system and arrangement of matters as the consolidated text of the Act, because the former Act 29/1975 presented a somewhat limited regulation dealing only with the principal content in the fields of benefits and organisation of this special regime, finally providing for a remission of the law in favour of the regulation.
As stated in Article 1 of the Regulation on Administrative Mutualism, its purpose is the development and execution of the consolidated text of the Act on Social Security for State Civil Servants, approved by Legislative Royal Decree 4/2000, of 23 June.
The staff to which the Regulation applies (Article 3 thereof) comprises:
- Career civil servants in the State Civil Administration
- Probationary civil servants
- Civil servants specified in the special cases of the framework of the first additional provision and additional provision 4
- Civil servants that came from the previous Inspection and Advice Service for Local Corporations
On the other hand, the following are excluded from this MUFACE special scheme:
- Civil servants in Local Government
- Autonomous organisations
- Civil servants in the Military Administration
- Civil servants in the Justice Administration
- Civil servants in the Social Security Administration
- Newly incorporated civil servants and probationers in the autonomous communities
- Civil servants to the autonomous communities
- Administrative staff and services specific to universities
Finally, remember that the public body to which the management of administrative mutualism belongs as a unit is MUFACE or the General State Civil Servant Mutual Society (Article 4 of the Regulation)
