EIDAS regulation: the European electronic signature

In 2016, the European eIDAS regulation was deployed; this contributes to creating a digital single market by creating suitable conditions for the cross-border mutual recognition of essential functions (such as electronic identification, the management of electronic documents and electronic signatures, delivery services) and for the interoperability of eGovernment services across the European Union. Particularly, the eIDAS regulation has equated the advanced electronic signature with the qualified digital signature, giving it the same law probative value.
