eIDAS high-level event | A big leap in the eIDAS journey: new trust services for a Digital Single Market

  •   30 June 2016
  •   Brussels

On 1 July 2016, the new rules on trust services under the eIDAS Regulation will come into effect in the 28 EU Member States repealing the 15 year-old eSignature Directive and modernising the legal framework for trust services.
This will be a turning point in the eIDAS journey and another big milestone towards a Digital Single Market.

Watch the event online - live webstreaming and recoding are avalable.

The event, which will see the participation of European Commission Vice-President Andrus Ansip (@Ansip_EU), will bring together visionary private sector leaders and policy decision makers to discuss the opportunities that the new eIDAS rules will bring and how to seize them in achieving a Digital Single Market. They will share experiences, business models and success stories on how make the use of electronic trust services an everyday reality and the easiest and most convenient way to carry out electronic transactions.

Through interactive exchanges, animated debates and live demos, focus will be on how the uptake of trust services will ease digital transformation of organisations, enhance the customer experience, improve the security of electronic transactions and stimulate the provisioning of new and innovative services thus moving faster towards a Digital Single Market.
