Commission launches public consultation on the eIDAS Regulation to take into account developments in digital identity and trust

The European Commission has launched a public consultation on the revision of the rules on electronic identification and trust services for electronic transactions in the internal market, the eIDAS Regulation. 

The evaluation will take into account the latest technological and policy developments, such as the increased reliance on doing business online.

The public consultation will be open until 2 October 2020, aiming to collect views from a broad range of stakeholders and citizens in order to evaluate the existing regulation. In parallel, targeted consultations with selected groups of stakeholders will be conducted. They will gather data and evidence on the impacts of specific elements of the possible revision.

The eIDAS Regulation, fully in force since 2018, is the first and most advanced cross-border legal framework for cross-border electronic identification, authentication and website certification within the EU. Since February, EU citizens and companies in eight EU Member States can use their national eID across the EU and as of next year, 55% of EU population will be covered.

The Connecting Europe Facility (CEF) eID, eSignature and eDelivery Building Blocks help implement the provisions of this regulation in the form of free, open standards-based reusable solutions. Have a look and see how you can benefit from using one or more of these Building Blocks.
