Estonian Company Registration Portal Accepts Digital Signatures Given in Other Countries [2]
Maris Jrv, Ministry of Justice, Estonia
Ingmar Vali, Centre of Registers and Information Systems, Estonia
No. 01, 2009
The development of e-services in Estonia has been fast in recent years. Most management of business with the state can be executed either by e-mail or through different portals. Simpler proceedings can be performed by way of summary procedures, but more complex transactions requiring legal certainty must be confirmed either with personal or notarys digital signature. The development of e-services in Estonia has been facilitated by the wide spread of the Estonian ID card and broad availability of the Internet. The ID card allows us to securely communicate with the state. Can the same be said about communication with other EU member states? Estonia has set itself a target to accept digital signatures that have been issued with ID card certificates of other EU countries. Portugal has a similar aim and other countries are also moving in the same direction.
