Electronic seals were incorporated by the EIDAS Regulation in 2014 and are equivalent to electronic signatures.
The EIDAS Regulation specifies that only a legal person can create a seal, whereas an electronic signature can be associated to both a natural or a legal person or entity. Therefore, an electronic seal IS NOT an electronic signature of legal person.
When a legal person uses electronic stamps, it is recommended to implement an internal control mechanism that ensures that only natural persons who have the right to act on behalf of the legal entity can use electronic stamps.
