Regulation (EU) 910/2014 of the European Parliament and of the Council on electronic identification and trust services for electronic transactions in the internal market – technical specifications.
The technical specifications for the eIDAS interoperability framework have been developed by the European Commission with the help of member states collaborating in a technical sub-committee of the eIDAS Expert Group. A further role of the Commission has been to provide a sample implementation of the technical specifications which member states are free to adopt as an "off the shelf" implementation should they wish to do so.
In line with Regulation (EU) No 910/2014 of the European Parliament and of the Council on electronic identification and trust services for electronic transactions in the internal market, and with COMMISSION IMPLEMENTING REGULATION (EU) 2015/1501 of 8 September 2015 on the interoperability framework, in particular with regard to Article 12 thereof, in order to implement the interoperability framework, technical specifications could be developed. The present technical specifications may serve as the basis of further details of the technical requirements contained by COMMISSION IMPLEMENTING REGULATION (EU) 2015/1501.
