Dear all,

We would like to invite you to a live webinar to explore the impact of the eIDAS Regulation in the Trust Services through the Electronic Registered Delivery Service (ERDS). You will learn about the benefits of CEF eDelivery and the reuse case involving Postal Service Operators of the CEF-funded NOBLE project (NO Barriers in edeLivEry).

Presentations from experts in the field will include the specific requirements laid-out by the eIDAS Regulation on the ERDS and an overview of the CEF eDelivery AS4 message exchange protocol.

As you may know, the eIDAS Regulation is technological-neutral and CEF eDelivery AS4 is part of a set of other compliant technological solutions available. Postal Service Operators are welcome to participate, and all content and materials will be circulated afterwards.

Please feel free to forward this link to your colleagues.

Do not hesitate to contact us to in case of any query in advance.

We look forward to welcoming you.

Best regards,

CEF Digital




eIDAS establishes the principle that an electronic document should not be denied legal effect on the grounds that it is in an electronic form. Having this objective in mind, it introduces Electronic Registered Delivery Service (ERDS) as a new trust service. eIDAS defines ERDS as a service that makes it possible to transmit data between third parties by electronic means and provides evidence relating to the handling of the transmitted data, including proof of sending and receiving the data, and that protects it against the risk of loss, theft, damage or any unauthorised alterations.

The CEF eDelivery building block helps public administrations and businesses (and indirectly citizens) to participate in eDelivery Messaging Infrastructures which facilitate organisation-to-organisation messaging by enabling their systems to interact with each other in a secure, reliable and trusted way. The Connecting Europe Facility (CEF) Digital Programme, is currently promoting the adoption of common standards in the eDelivery Messaging Infrastructures in different policy domains (Business Registers, eJustice, eProcurement, etc.).

CEF eDelivery builds on the work of the Member States on the Large Scale Pilots (such as e-SENS) and the Regulation (EU) N°910/2014 on Electronic identification and trust services, commonly known as the eIDAS Regulation.

CEF eDelivery supports the fundamental principles of the Digital age by promoting the alignment between its technical specifications and the eIDAS regulatory framework.
