On July 1st 2016, the eIDAS Regulation went into effect, aiming to enable mutual recognition and acceptance of electronic identification schemes across EU borders. European Commission was dissatisfied with its predecessor, the E-signature Directive (1999). eIDAS was set out to give consistency to electronic signature regulations in the EU.

The regulation wants to ensure that secure electronic identification and authentication is possible for cross-border online services offered by Member States. The electronic signatures will have the same legal weight as their physical counterparts, but otherwise national laws will define the legal effect of these signatures.
