Why use an EAS service guaranteeing conformity with the eIDAS Regulation?

The digital transformation of companies is advancing at a relentless pace due to legal obligations and internal management policies.

To go digital with full guarantees and legal validity it is essential to draw on trusted services to preserve data securely for the time required by law or by aspects related to corporate activity.

The application of eIDAS at the European level also ensures interoperability in electronic storage and its guarantees in Member States, something the European Commission is implementing across a wealth of projects to drive a climate of cross-border trust. It involves providing electronically archived documents in any country with the same validity in any other territory and any legal situation or when required by third parties.

The European nature of the Regulation means that all EU countries are starting to adapt their processes to make them compliant. In France the laws are being adapted to eIDAS and everything concerning zero-paper tax matters must reasonably begin to comply with the regulation. We can even find direct references to it in recent legislation such as Decree 2016-1673 on the digitalization of reliable copies regulating the technical process to follow for an electronic copy to have the value of an original.

Having a tech provider which is also a Qualified Trust Service Provider lets companies comply with the law right from the start and provides their electronically stored documents with the evidence needed to guarantee long-term integrity.

What does the eIDAS trust services and electronic identification regulation bring to the digitalization of business systems?

Regulation No 910/2014 was published on 23 July 2014. Implementation across all Member States began two years later, on 1 July 2016, and from that time it also repealed the Electronic Signatures Directive 1999/93/EC.

Now companies, people, and public administrations have more effective alternatives to ensure that their digital operations are reliable and can make a greater number of electronic transactions.

In an increasingly digital Europe, citizens, companies, and the public sector need a regulatory framework that brings security and legal certainty to electronic activities. These security mechanisms are set forth in Regulation No 910/2014, known as eIDAS. This new regulation brackets electronic documents in the same category as traditional paper ones. It also stresses that to preserve them for the long term it is necessary to have a certified and trusted document safekeeping system.

In this White Paper, we present the new qualified trust services, emphasizing electronic document safekeeping services.
