In order to exploit the full potential of the tools offered by the eIDAS Regulation and to benefit from a real digitisation across all sectors and beyond national borders, all interested parties should be involved: citizens, businesses and public administrations.

In this context, the Commission launches the eIDAS Observatory - an online collaborative platform for exchanging views and positions, sharing ideas and good practices. 

The Observatory is a virtual community of stakeholders whose aim is to build a common understanding of the issues relating to the implementation and uptake of the eIDAS Regulation and to facilitate the use of cross-border electronic identification and trust services. 

The Commission welcomes the involvement of a wide range of public and private sector participants who will use their experience, technical skills and knowledge to provide evidence-based and data-driven policy support for the EU. It encourages representation of various economic sectors, especially those where sector-specific legal and policy instruments foresee the need for electronic identification and/or trust services.

You can join the eIDAS Observatory and take part in the discussions.
