Most of the transactions between users are done electronically. At European level, each Member State has its own legislation regarding the electronic communications. For this reason, a commitment has been made to create a common framework that guarantees the legal security of transactions between countries: the eIDAS regulation.

Thus, the eIDAS regulation aims to facilitate any electronic transaction between citizens, businesses and public administrations of any Member State. We tell you the benefits that this regulation has for companies.

What is the eIDAS Regulation?

The eIDAS Regulation, also known as Regulation (EU) No. 910/2014 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 23 July 2014, establishes the guidelines for electronic identification. Its main objective is to secure telematic relations between users.

The eIDAS regulation establishes a common framework for trusted services, giving them the same legality as traditional paper-based signature processes.

In this way, the eIDAS regulation establishes a common legal framework for trusted services and means of electronic identification that affects all EU member countries. The most remarkable thing is that it facilitates any type of electronic transaction between users within the European territory.  According to its article 1, the eIDAS regulation establishes:

  •  The conditions under which the Member States shall recognise the means of electronic identification of natural and legal persons belonging to a notified electronic identification system of another Member State
  • The rules for trusted services, in particular for electronic transactions
  • A legal framework for electronic signatures, electronic seals, electronic time stamps, electronic documents, certified electronic delivery services and certificate services for website authentication 

What is eIDAS regulation?

In this way, the eIDAS regulation gives way to a digital single market with homogeneous standards that allow transactions to be digitised with no risk to the security of the parties involved. Below are some of the advantages of the eIDAS regulation:

  • To promote international trade, both in B2B and B2C.
  • To promote the use of electronic signatures with full legal security.
  • Reduce bureaucracy
  • Promote the digital business transformation..
  • Reduce administrative burdens..
  • Save management and delivery costs..
  • Control and protect the processing of personal data.

How does the European regulation affect to businesses?

The operations carried out by companies in their digital environment are safer and more reliable since the entry into force of the eIDAS regulation. As a result, the use of electronic signatures in the business environment has been strengthened, allowing:

  • Reduce paper use and bureaucracy in companies..
  • Savings in material, management and shipping costs.
  • Promote digital transformation and digitalization of internal processes.
  • Greater customer orientation.
  • Covering the international market.

Types of electronic signature

There are applications that offer different types of signature that vary according to the technology incorporated and the electronic evidence collected from them.  Discover below the different types of electronic signature and their characteristics:

Simple signature

The signatory accepts or rejects the information received by responding to the dialog box that appears on the screen. This type of signature is found, above all, at the time of accepting the conditions of use or the privacy policy.

Advanced OTP (SMS) signature

With this type of electronic signature the signatory receives a code by SMS that he must enter at the time of signing. This will validate the transaction. It is common when we make an online purchase, for example, or in a bank transaction from our bank’s app.

Advanced biometric signature

This signature requires the physical presence of the signatory, since he must sign on a specific tool (usually a tablet). Data such as the pressure, inclination and position of the pen with which the user signs is collected. It is common to use this type of electronic signature in the banking and insurance sector, where transactions are usually closed in person.

Qualified signature

It is based on the signature with a qualified digital certificate issued by a Certification Authority. The security of this signature is based on the two keys that a certificate has: public and private key. This type of electronic signature should be used in transactions that require full legal support, being able to defend the evidence collected in case of litigation.

IvCert, electronic signature and certified sending platform, offers its customers all types of electronic signatures. At a national level, it is the only platform that has the qualified signature, a method that has the maximum legal validity recognised by the European eIDAS regulation.
