We have asked about this issue and the answer from Confederación 
Hidrográfica del Guadiana, by the Information Systems Service Chief was 
as follows:

"I understand there shouldn't be any problem from our part, but it is 
not clear for me what we should do from here. Must we just state it in 
our web? Do we have to register somewhere?"
  Entiendo que por nuestra parte no debería haber ningún problema, pero 
no tengo claro que tenemos que hacer desde aquí.

Solo debemos indicarlo en nuestra web?. Hay que inscribirse en algún sitio?
