The aim of the public consultation (Opens in new window) is to determine how applies the regulation eIDAS (on services of confidence in the domestic market) in member countries of the HAT.

eIDAS aims secure electronic transactions in Europe, and has the support of the building blocks eID, eSignature and eDelivery Connecting Europe Facility (CEF).

eIDAS has led to the establishment of standards for secure digital interactions with tools such as electronic signatures, stamps, timestamps, delivery services and certificates of authentication of websites.

In addition to the public consultation, evaluation will also include input from questionnaires and interviews with key stakeholders, as well as a documentary research on a wide range of publicly available sources.

The public consultation takes place in the fourth quarter of 2019 and closes on 25 October 2019 (midnight, All time). then, the committee will take recommendations in the second quarter of 2020.
