Law firm Bird & Bird explains when an electronic signature is legally binding in the EU

Avoiding the need for wet signatures can make most business processes smoother, but are electronic signatures enough when you need a strong, legally binding contract?

In this memorandum, Danish law firm Bird & Bird examine two key questions related to Signicat's electronic signature solution and the eIDAS (Electronic Identification, Authentication and Trust Services) EU regulation:

  • Does Signicat Signature fulfil the requirements to be an ‘advanced’ electronic signature in relation to eIDAS?
  • Is it necessary to use an ‘advanced’ signature in order for the signature to be accepted as proof in legal proceedings?
