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.
