 Act on Electronic Signature
Country: Denmark
Focus: Electronic and Mobile Government
Description: The Act on Electronic Signature entered into force in October 2000. It implements the EU Directive on a Community Framework for Electronic Signatures (1999/93/EC). The definitions of advanced and ''qualified'' electronic signature under the Danish law are very close to those of the European Directive. Advanced and ''qualified'' electronic signatures cannot be issued to legal persons under the Danish law. The Danish Government has set up an official digital signature scheme whereby all citizens are due to receive a free software-based digital signature (OCES - Public Certificate for Electronic Services) providing sufficient security for most public sector and private sector transactions.
