11 October 2019

The European Commission is conducting, until the next 25 October, a public consultation on the road map of electronic transactions safe (eIDAS).

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. 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.

The programme CEF and benefits of eIDAS

  1. The EID CEF (Opens in new window)  Building Block es para que los proveedores de servicios del sector público y privado identifiquen electrónicamente a los consumidores (ciudadanos, empresas, clientes, autoridades públicas, etc.) de otros países europeos. Esto se realiza mediante el reconocimiento mutuo de los esquemas nacionales de identificación electrónica (eID), tal como se define en el Reglamento eIDAS.
  2. ESignature CEF (Opens in new window)  ayuda a las administraciones públicas y las empresas a crear y verificar firmas electrónicas de acuerdo con el Reglamento eIDAS. Los estándares definidos facilitan el reconocimiento mutuo y la interoperabilidad de las firmas electrónicas, mejorando la confianza y la eficiencia en las interacciones transfronterizas.
  3. EDelivery CEF (Opens in new window)  ofrece especificaciones, software de muestra y servicios de soporte para configurar una infraestructura de servicio de entrega registrada para el intercambio de datos y documentos. Este componente es compatible con eIDAS al mejorar la seguridad y la confiabilidad en los servicios de entrega electrónica.
