Redenomination of electronic signature standards

January 20, 2014 | Comments Off on Redenomination of electronic signature standards

Mandate M/460 is a European Commission initiative, backed by the member states, to deliver a rationalized collection os standards devoted to trustworthy trust related services designed to foster  the deployment of European Digital Single Market. Electronic signatures, electronic  identification, registered electronic mail and other services  should help securing e-business transactions and e-services in Europe.

The aim of the Mandate is to create the conditions for achieving the interoperability of eSignature  and other trust related services at a European level, by defining and providing a rationalised European eSignature standardisation framework.
