Electronic Signatures and Trust Services
by the UK Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS). Businesses and individuals involved in commercial transactions or messaging activities need to have confidence in, and be trusting of, any communication that is sent in relation to that activity. This helps to ensure that documents sent electronically have not been altered in any way, that the sender can be easily recognised, and that the document has the necessary security. Trust is the basis of business and commercial activity, and can be enhanced by the use of electronic signatures and trust services. Generally, electronic signatures and trust services can prove the origin of the communication or document, show whether a message has been altered and ensure messages remain confidential. This guide is intended to assist individuals and businesses in understanding the changes made to the electronic signature regime introduced by Regulation (EU) No 910/2014 on electronic identification and trust services for electronic transactions in the internal market (the eIDAS Regulation).
