Welcome to eSig-Web

The lack of mutual recognition of electronic signatures among the Member States has been recognised as one of the barriers in conducting business at the European level, namely in the area of public eProcurement. Therefore, an understanding of the current legal implications and requirements in terms of interoperability of electronic signatures is required.

An specific action was initiated by the European Commission IDABC unit to analyze the requirements in terms of interoperability of electronic signatures for different eGovernment applications and services taking into account the relevant provisions of Directive 1999/93/EC on a Community framework for electronic signatures and their national implementation as well as the report on the Directive and the standardization activities on the interoperability of electronic signatures.

This website does represent the current situation regarding the use of eSignatures in national eGovernment applications.
