On the 29th of September the mandatory cross-border recognition of notified electronic Identification (eID) schemes under the eIDAS Regulation came into full force. The European Commission has recently published materials on the potential benefits for SMEs on re-using existing eID schemes (https://ec.europa.eu/digital-single-market/en/eidas-smes), however this will depend on the decision by each member state to open up their national eID scheme to the private sector. What benefits do you think this would bring to businesses in Europe?
