The aim of the public consultation 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. The regulation has also given to certain electronic signatures the same legal position that traditional signatures on paper.
Secure electronic transactions are important for the future of Europe and the single digital market. Ensure profitable operations of the public sector and increase the competitiveness of our businesses in the current digital climate.
Feedback from the public consultation will be used to evaluate the effectiveness, efficiency, relevance, coherence and added value of regulation. The results will be detailed in a document, which may include recommendations related to the approach, technology or a new legislative proposal.
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.
