8. Main Content
This draft is based on Regulation (EU) No 910/2014 on electronic identification and trust services for electronic transactions in the internal market and repealing Directive 1999/93/EC (OJ L 257, 28.8.2014, p. 73) (the ‘eIDAS Regulation’).

Re Article 1
The Signature and Trust Services Regulation [Signatur- und Vertrauensdiensteverordnung – SVV] contains, in particular, provisions on the fixing of fees for the services provided by the supervisory body, the reliability of a qualified trust services provider (TSP) and its staff, detailed requirements concerning qualified certificates and the request for their issue, as well as detailed requirements concerning the certificate database to be managed by the qualified TSP.

Re Article 2
Conformity of qualified electronic signature and seal creation devices with the requirements outlined in Annex II to the eIDAS Regulation is certified by the public or private authorities designated by the Member States. In Austria, this task is undertaken by a confirmation body in accordance with § 7 of the Signature and Trust Services Law [Signatur- und Vertrauensdienstegesetz – SVG]. This Regulation determines the suitability of the Secure Information Technology Center - Austria as the confirmation body.


9. Brief Statement of Grounds
Implementation of the directly applicable eIDAS Regulation involves, inter alia, adapting the domestic provisions that have hitherto governed electronic signatures. This means that instead of the Signature Law [Signaturgesetz], which is to be repealed, a new SVG forming the basis for this proposal will be enacted.

Owing to the repeal of the Signature Law, the Signature Regulation 2008 [Signaturverordnung 2008 – SigV 2008] must also be repealed. The provisions required to implement the SVG must now be enacted together with the SVV. With the enactment of the SVV, use will be made of the statutory authorisation under § 17 SVG.
