DigitalSign: European Commission "Eu Sign" service
DigitalSign is very proud to be the chosen entity by the European Commission, for issuing Qualified Digital Certificates, under the eIDAS regulation, to support the European Commission's EU Sign service which among many other relevant acts, enabled the signing of the first international agreement using Qualified electronic signatures, in a joint initiative with the World Bank.
We are honored to participate in this project at European Commission and appreciate the spirit of innovation of the Commission and the World Bank.

"On Wednesday, 8 July 2020, the European Commission and the World Bank Group signed electronically a Financial Framework Partnership Agreement, which guides the terms under which the Bank Group will use EU funding for development projects across the world. This is the first international agreement that the Commission signs using its own Qualified Electronic Signature service, EU Sign.
Johannes Hahn, European Commissioner for Budget and Administration, said:
“The use of electronic signatures is becoming a norm for modern public administrations and I am looking forward to fully implementing it in the Commission’s work processes.”"
