INFOGRAPHIC: What do we choose between qualified electronic signature and hand signature?

Before giving the answer to the question "What do we choose between the qualified electronic signature and the hand signature?", we offer you a brief introduction to this topic.

Practice gives us two situations - handwritten signature and electronic signature, of interest for us being the qualified one. Qualified electronic signature is regulated by Regulation (EU) No. 910/2014 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 23 July 2014 on electronic identification and trust services for e-commerce in the Internal Market (eIDAS).

The most important aspect to remember? A qualified electronic signature has the equivalent legal effect of a handwritten signature. A qualified electronic signature based on a qualified certificate issued by a Member State is recognized as a qualified electronic signature in all other Member States.

In order to better understand the reasons for choosing the qualified electronic signature, we invite you to consult a comparative infographic between it and the handwritten signature, addressing costs, security, transmission, storage and environmental impact.
