European Union laws

On July 1, 2016 the Regulation (UE) Nº 910/2014 came into force - known as the eIDAS - related to the electronic identification and trust services for electronic transactions in the internal market, repealing the Directive 1999/93/CE.

The eIDAS defines 3 types of electronic signatures:

As a Regulation, and not a Directive, the eIDAS is directly applied to all EU member states.

The problems of legal fragmentation, interoperability and legal barriers derived from the previous Directive - Directive 1999/93/CE - which by simply being a Directive allowed each member state to interpret it in its own way.
