eIDAS Regulation and eSignatures


eIDAS introduces a new, EU-wide legal framework for electronic identification (eID), and trust services, including electronic signatures, seals and documents.


The potential of an EU-wide framework for eID is provided, with the introduction of national eID schemes by Member States. These schemes allow the eID of citizens using public services. This is potentially applicable to public services offered by any Member State for all EU citizens. Further, the potential of the eID aspect is great in terms of future use of eID schemes by private businesses.


The new framework offers consistency and conformity within the EU Member States in relation to trust services while enabling and encouraging the legally predictable application of such services by businesses. The regulation provides the conditions for recognizing simple, advanced and qualified trust services. Also, eIDAS offers the supervisory measures and standards of trust services.


eIDAS has great potential for individuals, businesses and Member States.
