The eIDAS Regulation (no 910/2014) is an abbreviation which stands for electronic Identification, Authentication and trust Services. It is a European regulation which went into force on the first of July 2016.
Based on an analysis of DLA Piper, Connective eSignatures is an electronic signature solution that allows one to manage an end-to-end signing process compliant with all types of electronic signatures available under the eIDAS Regulation.
The eIDAS European regulation establishes the requirements that must be met by the Trust Services providers (TSP) that offer trust services such as electronic signature, website authentication, electronic registered mail, etc. within the internal market.
Connective received the TSP certificate from LSTI, which is registered on the European Commission official list of Conformity Asssessment Bodies (CABs) accredited to carry out eIDAS audits:

UETA & ESIGN Act
The United States, for being a federal republic composed of 50 states, has both federal and state regulations. Therefore, there are two laws that regulate the electronic signature in the USA: UETA (Uniform Electronic Transactions) Act & ESIGN Act.
With the Connective´s solutions you can electronically sign while exceeding the requirements of the ESIGN Act and the Uniform Electronic Transactions Act in the United States.
On December 19, 2003, ZertES, the Swiss Federal law regarding the use of certification services with electronic signatures became effective. This legislation regulates the conditions in which trust service providers may use certification services with electronic signatures.
ZertES allows to electronically sign documents in a legally binding way. Acting in geographical proximity of the European Community, it is not surprising that ZertES is conceived similarly to eIDAS, in particular when looking at the tiered structure and legal value. ZertES has multiple assurance levels, the highest of which is the QES level equivalent to a handwritten one and mandatory for many official documents. Connective’s eSignatures solution has been assessed towards this legislation by DLA Piper. Connective eSignatures meets the Swiss requirements of electronic signatures.
Hong Kong Law
Electronic Transactions Ordinance (Cap. 553) – The Electronic Transactions Ordinance (Cap. 553) (ETO) provides the legal framework in Hong Kong for the recognition of electronic records, contracts and signatures, granting them the same legal status as their paper counterparts.
Connective’s eSignatures solution has been assessed towards this legislation by DLA Piper. Connective eSignatures meets the Hong Kong requirements of electronic signatures.
