eIDAS - Summit - Trust Services in Germany and Europe BMWI bitkom

22nd of March 2018, Berlin, Federal Ministry of Economic Affaires and Energy


Electronic signatures, seals and timestamps as well as the delivery of electronic registered mail and website certificates offer enormous efficiency potential for business and administration. Since 1 July 2016, electronic trust services have been recognized throughout Europe under the Electronic Identification and Trust Services for Electronic Transactions in the Internal Market (eIDAS) Regulation. They make it possible to complete transactions quickly and easily across borders. Electronic trust services are also an important building block for the success of eGovernment.


The Bitkom and the Federal Ministry of Economic Affaires and Energy would like to inform you about interesting updates on the current state of implementation of eIDAS and discuss with you current questions about electronic trust services: How can electronic trust services be harnessed today? Where are they already used? What potential do they offer? Where should and can new application possibilities be created and does the legal status quo allow these application possibilities? What is the effect of the eIDAS Implementation Act, which came into force on 29 July 2017?


In addition to these topics, you will also be presented with the latest applications and developments in the field of electronic trust services and innovations in the eID function.


Therefore we would like to remind you about the event "eIDAS Summit – Trust Services in Germany und Europe" in Berlin and ask you to save the date:


22nd of March 2018 | 10:30 am – 5:30 pm | Federal Ministry of Economic Affaires and Energy, Berlin


We are looking forward to meeting you at the eIDAS-Summit. For registration, please send an email to l.ambrosio@bitkom.org.
