E-Signature Regulations

Does your jurisdiction maintain a list of trusted entities to qualify e-signatures?

Yes. Certificates based on which electronic signatures are provided may be issued only by trusted entities. Such certificates are valid for a limited period of time (no more than 3 years) and their issuance is subject to a fee payable to such trusted entities.

Please provide a quick overview of the law, i.e., types of contracts that qualify for use with e-signature.

Any type of contract/ document may be subject to e-signature.

What is the legality of e-signatures in your jurisdiction? Are there key exceptions?

Any document having an EXTENDED electronic signature attached thereto has the value of an original hand signed document (even in court files).

Applicable exceptions to had signed documents are equally exceptions from e-signed documents: documents that have to be signed in front of a notary public do not stand legal binding force if signed with electronic (extended) signature.

What is the e-signature law enforceable in your jurisdiction?

Law 455/2001 regarding electronic signature (republished in 2014)
