Revelation 13A bolder plan beyond e-signatures
Despite those cultural differences, Brussels still has the intention of moving ahead and a draft regulation is being examined in the Commission's several departments in so-called inter-service consultation.
The plan, to be unveiled in the coming days, is even more ambitious than the Commission's previous legislative attempt, as Brussels now wants to extend the electronic authentication to a number of services, beyond e-signatures.
Kroes plans to “widen the scope of the current Directive by including also ancillary authentication services that complement e-signatures, like electronic seals, time/date stamps, etc,” reads an internal paper prepared by her cabinet.
To address the lack of mutual recognition of electronic certificates, Brussels wants to make it compulsory.
“It is proposed that all member states recognise and accept all formally notified e-IDs from other EU member states,” underlines the paper.
The proposal does not go as far as proposing the introduction of electronic documents where they do not exist, but the obvious aim is to create an incentive for countries to do it.
