European Union established the eIDAS Regulation (EU 910/2014) which has been a crucial component of the European Commission’s initiative to form the Digital Single Market (DSM) for EU Member States, providing a legal framework for the formalization of a wide range of digital transactions.
eIDAS acronym stands for electronic IDentification, Authentication and trust Services that aims to make electronic transactions more secure and trustworthy within European Union, by facilitating the smooth flow of commerce in the EU through transparency, security, technical neutrality, cooperation and interoperability. It offers a standardized approach and a common framework for secure electronic transactions between natural persons, businesses and public authorities.
Since it is a European Regulation, all Member-States and any public or privately-held organization which has a European presence or does business with an organization within a European Member-State will be required to comply with the eIDAS Regulation.
The path to achieving compliance is structured procedure which, based on the particular eIDAS services provided by the organization, a set of different requirements is added on top of the eIDAS requirements, such as:
- organizational, legal and procedural requirements
