What is eIDAS?

eIDAS is the EU’s latest electronic signature regulation. Ratified in 2014, the eIDAS regulation is applicable across the EU since 2016. It is the cornerstone of national regulation in all member states for the provision of legally recognized electronic signatures. eIDAS defines the scope as well as the necessary conditions of legal eSignatures.

The eIDAS electronic signature regulation enables businesses to choose legally compliant providers to ensure that their agreements are legally binding. eSignatures are recognized by law in all EU-member states provided they satisfy eIDAS requirements.
