eIDAS and E-Signature: A Legal Perspective

In this eIDAS paper, legal expert Lorna Brazell of Osborne Clarke LLP, explains electronic signatures under the EU’s new Electronic ID and Trust Services Regulation.

In effect as of July 2016, the Regulation facilitates cross-border recognition of e-signatures and e-identities. In the market, however, confusion remains about the three types of electronic signatures, and which are legally effective and admissible.

Lorna Brazell explains why an e-signature cannot be denied legal effect merely on the grounds that it is in electronic form or does not meet the requirements for qualified electronic signatures.

In this white paper, you will learn:

  • Whether you can use an e-signature to create a legally binding contract in your country
  • The difference between an advanced e-signature and a qualified e-signature
  • The use cases best suited to each e-signature type
  • Legal best practices to be aware of

In the second half of the paper, OneSpan VP Michael Laurie explains how OneSpan Sign supports the Regulation for each e-signature type. Includes an e-signature evaluation checklist for meeting EU-specific requirements.
