Posted by Salvador Severich on July 7, 2016 at 9:00 AM

On June 30th, we participated in the last event related to the new Regulation 910/2014, organized by the European Commission. Held just before July 1 2016, the date to apply this new regulation known as eIDAS, which concerns electronic identification and trust services.

Andrus Ansip, VP of the European Commission and responsible for the Digital Single Market, kicked the session off. As he responded to Paul Hofheinz´s questions, President of the think tank The Lisbon Council, Ansip explained his experience facing the key initiatives of the project and shared his knowledge on the topic.  As the previous minister of Estonia, a pioneering country in the development and implementation of the electronic signature, Asnip provides a special expertise to this matter.

From his point of view, the eIDAS Regulation and the trust services that it promotes are key to achieve a common digital market: with the new regulation mutual recognition is no longer an option, but an obligation for the member states.
