The Ministry of Energy, Tourism and Digital Agenda has published on its website new information on the evolution of the application of digital trust services.
In December 2016 MINETAD requested suggestions regarding the aspects that the new Law that will replace the Electronic Signature Law should cover and in this phase the processing of the new Law on certain aspects of electronic trust services continues.
The current Law 59/2003, of Electronic Signature, conflicts in several aspects with Regulation EU 910/2014 (EIDAS), so it is necessary to adapt the Spanish legal system to the provisions of Regulation.
Regulation (EU) 910/2014 on electronic identification and trust services for electronic transactions in the internal market and repealing Directive 1999/93 / EC is directly applicable in all European Union and national laws should only regulate aspects that are not included in the Regulation.
In this sense, and in accordance with article 26.6 of Law 50/1997, of November 27, of the government, MINETAD has invited several stakeholders to participate in the public hearing that can be found in the following link :
All contributions will help to ensure the correctness of the new standard, so all interested parties are encouraged to participate in this public hearing by sending to the mailbox firstname.lastname@example.org any comments they deem appropriate for the text of the draft bill
In accordance with article 26.6 of Law 50/1997, of November 27, of the Government, the preliminary draft public hearing of the Law regulating certain aspects of electronic trust services was substantiated. This law complements the Regulation (EU) No 910/2014 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 23 July 2014 on electronic identification and trustworthy services for electronic transactions in the internal market and repealing Directive 1999/93 / EC.
