Electronic signatures: Planning, testing & certification of your trust service

Facilitate trustworthy & legally effective transactions as a qualified Trust Service Provider (TSP) for electronic signatures

Trust Service Providers (TSP) issuing certificates for electronic signatures are subject to extensive legal and professional requirements. These are established, among others, in the eIDAS Regulation, which aims to make electronic signatures legally binding and recognizable throughout the EU.

Therefore, if you wish to be officially included as a Trust Service Provider in the European eIDAS Trusted Service List (TSL) of qualified providers, you must prove that your service meets the security requirements set out in the eIDAS Regulation.

We will support you through the labyrinth of requirements and accompany you on your way to achieving the status of qualification. Starting with the planning of your services, through the required audits, to conformity assessment or re-certification, we offer you both the eIDAS complete package and individual services to fit your specific situation.

What are electronic signatures?

An electronic signature serves as proof that an electronic document was signed by a natural person. The European eIDAS Regulation also defines advanced electronic signatures and qualified electronic signatures, which are relevant as signature forms for business transactions. They enable the signatory to be identified and are uniquely assigned to the signatory. A qualified electronic signature is also used if the written form is required by law. It has the same legal effect as a handwritten signature.
