Electronic identification and trust services (eIDAS).


To boost TRUST and CONVENIENCE in secure and seamless cross-border electronic transactions by promoting the widespread use and uptake of electronic identification and trust services (eIDAS services).

Public administration, businesses and citizens will regularly use eIDAS services;

Users will demand more and innovative eIDAS services and new services/apps will emerge on the market;

eIDAS will be turned into a source of growth and jobs, supporting both the internal and global markets;

eIDAS regulatory framework, standards and technologies will influence international dialogues and trade negotiations, thus broadening the economies of scale for eIDAS services and increasing the global competitiveness of European businesses and private sector.


Our priority is to deliver a predictable regulatory environment related to electronic identification and trust services. The eIDAS Regulation aims at boosting the user convenience, trust and confidence in the digital world, while keeping pace with technological developments, promoting innovation and stimulating competition.Following the recent political level agreement, the formal adoption of the Regulation is expected by September. Thereafter, we will develop related delegated/implementing acts. This will be accompanied by the necessary policy, standardisation and communication activities at the EU and International levels to ensure understanding and a positive environment for the acceptance and wide uptake of the new legislative framework.Other complementary actions delivered by the Task Force are:

Leveraging the large scale pilots (like STORK, SPOCS, PEPPOL, eCodex, epSOS) as a pillar for the development of interoperability of cross-border eID and trust. Identifying and using appropriate mechanisms to develop and engage "communities" citizens and SMEs in particular - in promoting the use and uptake of eID and trust services.

Bridging the eIDAS Regulation and technical/innovation projects (under existing and future programmes, i.e. CIP, FP7, Horizon 2020 and CEF) with relevant non-EU Governmental and private-sector led initiatives with a view to drive innovation at global level and increase the market and social growth opportunities for European stakeholders. To this end, we will develop a strategy, cooperation framework and appropriate mechanisms for sustainable international cooperation and engagements on eIDAS-related priorities.

Follow-up of the existing legislative framework (currently Directive 1999/93/EC 1 and, upon formal adoption, the eIDAS Regulation). This includes managing the legal proceedings related to the existing legal framework and providing feedback to both the legislative process of the proposed Regulation as well as policy and standardisation activities.

We will define a transition plan for the organisational structure needed after the expiration of the Task Force's mandate in order to ensure the smooth continuatio
