Welcome to FastSign – a Standard Electronic Signature (SES) system
Despite Electronic Signatures being legal for nearly 2 decades, there is still confusion as to the various laws regulating their use..
After countless hours of research on the Internet, the current situation is as follows. There are 2 Acts which are most often referred to and which the majority of countries use. These are The ESIGN Act and The eIDAS Regulations. The aim of both is to give Electronic Signatures legal status, thus affording them court admissibility.
- THE ESIGN ACT – this can be a symbol: Both parties must agree to the use Electronic Signatures as a means to transact electronically.
- THE eIDAS REGULATION – a tickbox can be used to sign documents: These Regulations apply to EU member states and come in 3 types – Standard Electronic Signatures (SES), Advanced Electronic Signatures (AES) and Qualified Electronic Signatures (QES).
Yes it will work for you. Our program, FastSign qualifies on both counts – it is both a symbol and a tickbox. The important thing is that you use FastSign (SES) only for E-Signatures as may be appropriate. For more information click. here. If in doubt consult a local attorney as we are not qualified to give legal advice and nothing on this site must be taken as such.
An AES is an “advanced electronic signature”, a type of electronic signature that meets the following requirements: (a) it is uniquely linked to the signatory; (b) it is capable of identifying the signatory; (c) it is created using means that are under the signatory’s sole control; and (d) it is linked to other electronic data in such a way that any alteration to the said data can be detected.
A QES is a specific digital signature implementation that has met the particular specifications of a government, including using a secure signature creation device, and been certified as ‘qualified’ by either that government or a party contracted by that government.
A SES is standard electronic signature document and is usually used for a more generic purpose such as HR and general company documentation such as quotes etc. This is the largest proportion of documentation submitted and this is where U-SIGN-IT can assist you.
