What exactly is eIDAS?
eIDAS (Electronic IDentification Authentication and trust Services) promotes interoperability across the 27 EU Member States, ensuring that countries mutually recognise each other’s notified electronic identification schemes. The Regulation proposes a clear legal framework for individuals, companies, and public administrations to safely access services and carry out transactions online with a single "click". eIDAS acts as a catalyst for the implementation of data privacy legislative frameworks and technologies (GDPR, Data Act, AI Act, etc.) in all European sectors and institutions that are experiencing an accelerated digitalisation of their services.
