Evaluation (CBA) of the eIDAS Regulation
Support during the data mapping activities and in the preparation of the final reporting. Particularly, Innovation Hive conducted desk research and interviewes aiming to gather all the necessary information in order to compose and present a Cost Benefit Analysis(CBA) of the efficiency of the regulation.
The Regulation (EU) N°910/2014 on electronic identification and trust services for electronic transactions in the internal market (eIDAS Regulation) was adopted by the co-legislators on 23 July 2014 and is a milestone to provide a predictable regulatory environment to enable secure and seamless electronic interactions between businesses, citizens and public authorities.
The eIDAS Regulation:
- ensures that people and businesses can use their own national electronic identification schemes (eIDs) to access public services available online in other EU countries.
- creates an European internal market for Trust Services – namely electronic signatures, electronic seals, time stamp, electronic delivery service and website authentication – by ensuring that they will work across borders and have the same legal status as their traditional paper based equivalents . Only by providing certainty on the legal validity of all these services, businesses and citizens will use digital interactions as their natural way of interaction.
The aim of the project is to collect feedback on drivers and barriers to the development and uptake of eID and trust services in Europe and on the impacts of the options for delivering an EU digital identity.
