As a qualified Trust Service Provider (TSP), guaranteeing the legal certainty of documents with the help of electronic time stamps

As a qualified Trust Service Provider for electronic time stamps, you provide companies with legally secure proof that documents have not been changed or even manipulated after a certain point in time.

If within this context you would like to be officially included in the European eIDAS Trusted Service List (TSL) of qualified providers, you must prove that your service meets the security requirements specified in the eIDAS Regulation and submit a corresponding conformity assessment report to your competent supervisory authority – in Germany, the Federal Network Agency (BNetzA).

Qualification with the help of TÜViT: From the planning of your services, through the required checks to the conformity assessment or re-certification, we offer you the very services that you require for successful qualification. Moreover, we prepare you for any upcoming certification in the form of made-to-measure workshops or convert you to an eIDAS.PROFESSIONAL within the framework of our specific training.

What are electronic time stamps?

An electronic time stamp links data in electronic form to a specific point in time, thereby providing evidence that this data existed at that time. For this purpose, the time stamp includes the exact date and the exact time of its creation. In the form of a qualified electronic time stamp, it links the time information with the data by means of an advanced electronic signature or an equivalent process so that any changes can be detected. Electronic time stamps are based on a correct time source which is linked to Coordinated Universal Time (UTC).
