eIDAS Event on eID

30 May 2016

The European Commission organised a workshop on May 17 in order to take stock of the latest developments as well as to accelerate the cross-border use of eID.

Elena Alampi-das Neves Moreira, from the Task Force Legislation Team (eIDAS) of the Commission, posted a blog note in order to summarise the discussions. She calls businesses to cooperate with national regulators and administrations to seize the opportunity to rely on the use of notified eIDs under eIDAS.

An eIDAS high-level event, with the participation of Vice-president Andrus Ansip, will be held on June 30 since the new rules on trust services will come into effect on 1 July 2016.
