Added functionality in Noticeman Webservices integration

The Noticeman registered email platform generates electronic evidence both when the last mile delivery is done digitally and when delivered through a postal medium.

EADTrust contributes to the digital transformation of companies with electronic tools that facilitate the processes of the entities and reduce friction in the user experience of managing the digital evidence. In the process of continuous improvement of EADTrust, backed by its ISO 9001, ISO 20000-1 and ISO 27001 certifications, new functionalities have been added to the Noticeman trustworthy notification systems integrated by webservices, especially aimed at companies with high volumes of notifications.

With the option of “Massive Upload” and “Mail Fusion”, multiple delivery is facilitated, leaving the platform the task of merging the personalized messages with the information of the recipient database. Attachments can consist of identical documents (so you only need to upload them once) or different ones, or combinations of them.

With the same idea of ​​multiple delivery, templates are customized with parameterizable data that are obtained from the recipient database and that the platform is responsible for individualizing every message.

Templates allow the incorporation of images to make more attractive the messages to be sent . EADTrust even offers a template design service that works directly with the staff of the entity.

The tool “backoffice” collects all the information of the shipments and through its menus allows to apply filters, perform searches with several criteria and view or download the selected information (for example, according to the progress status of the notification ).

eIdAS – European Council adopts electronic identification and trust services regulation

european-commissionThe Council of the European Union adopted the past 23 july 2014 a regulation which lays down conditions for mutual recognition of electronic identification; sets rules for trust services, in particular for electronic transactions; and creates a legal framework for electronic signatures, seals and time stamps, electronic documents as well as electronic registered delivery services and certificate services for website authentication (PE-CONS 60/14; statement: 11733/14 ADD 1).

The adoption came through the General Affairs Council which  meets once a month. Meetings bring together the Foreign Ministers of the Member States. Ministers responsible for European Affairs also participate depending on the items on agenda.

The  final adoption of the above mentioned legislative act by the Council follows an agreement reached at first reading with the European Parliament on april 2014. The regulation will enter into force 20 days after its publication in the European Union Official Journal, which is expected to take place within the next few days.

Easier and more secure cross-border transactions

The new regulation provides a common foundation for secure electronic interaction between businesses, citizens and public authorities.

It seeks to increase the effectiveness of public and private online services, electronic business and electronic commerce in the EU and to enhance trust in electronic transactions in the internal market. Mutual recognition of electronic identification and authentication is vital, for instance in making cross-border healthcare for European citizens a reality.

System for mutual recognition of electronic identification

The new rules require member states to recognise, under certain conditions, means of electronic identification of natural and legal persons falling under another member state’s electronic identification scheme which has been notified to the Commission. It is up to the member states to choose whether they want to notify all, some or none of the electronic identification schemes used at national level to access at least public online services or specific services.

These rules only cover cross-border aspects of electronic identification, and issuing means of electronic identification remains a national prerogative.

Timeline for mutual recognition

Those member states which so wish may join the scheme for recognising each others’ Comission notified e-identification means as soon as the necessary implementing acts are in place. This is expected to take place in the second half of 2015. The mandatory mutual recognition is expected to kick off in the second half of 2018.

From e-signature to trust services

Until now, there were EU provisions only on electronic signatures, laid down in the 1999 e-Signature Directive 1999/93/EC which is repealed with effect from July 2016.

In addition to enhancing and expanding these provisions, the new regulation also introduces, for the first time, EU-wide rules concerning trust services, such as the creation and verification of electronic time stamps and electronic registered delivery services, or the creation and validation of certificates for website authentication. Trust services which comply with the regulation can circulate freely within the single market, and their acceptation is mandatoryfor the authorities of all member states . In addition, an EU trust mark will be created to identify trust services which meet certain strict requirements (so called “qualified services”). The use of the trust mark will be voluntary.
