The eIDAS regulation

Conduct your digital transactions in compliance with the eIDAS regulation.

Check', an eIDAS compliant service

In an increasingly digital world and with the explosion of online services, the European market has had to put in place regulations within the EU countries to promote the development of a trusted market.

This regulation is called eIDAS, it stands for “electronic IDentification Authentication and trust Services”. It is based on two distinct components: digital identification and trust services. It provides a common security basis for the transmission of data between citizens, companies and authorities. What is at stake in the eIDAS regulation? To create a European framework of mutual recognition and compatibility for electronic identification and trust services.

It is this European regulation that standardises the 3 levels of reliability and guarantee for the digital signature and thus gives it legal value on documents. This eIDAS regulation is the basis of trust for the electronic signature and allows to fight against identity fraud. 

All our Check’ services comply with the latest requirements of the eIDAS regulation, allowing you to sign with confidence and with a recognised legal value. 

The eIDAS regulation and its 3 levels of trust

Trust services for electronic signatures

The electronic signature contains 3 levels of trust: simple, advanced and qualified.

– The simple electronic signature is used to authenticate documents with a low or medium risk (insurance contract, expense report, subscription to a service, etc.) and to validate the identity of the signatory via an SMS OTP.

– The advanced electronic signature offers the same level of reliability but allows for stronger authentication with the need to integrate a systematic verification of the identity of the signatory.

– The qualified electronic signature makes it possible to confirm the identity of the person when the documents are high-risk (invoices, responses to calls for tender, validation of banking transactions, etc.). The device used to sign a document remotely must then provide the same guarantees as those existing for a face-to-face signature.

The eIDAS regulation has introduced a fourth type of signature, the “digital seal”. It is reserved for legal persons and guarantees the origin and integrity of the associated data.
