On 16 October 2009 the European Commission adopted a Decision setting out measures facilitating the use of procedures by electronic means through the ‘points of single contact’ under the Services Directive. One of the measures adopted by the Decision consisted in the obligation for Member States to establish and publish by 28. 12.2009 their Trusted List of supervised/accredited certification service providers issuing qualified certificates to the public. The objective of this obligation is to enhance cross-border use of electronic signatures by increasing trust in electronic signatures originating from other Member States. The Decision was updated several times since 16.10.2009, the last amendmentwas made on 28.7.2010.
The “human readable version” includes useless and redundant information, and also shows a low “quality control”, since there are some links missing. Of all included information, I have extracted the parts that are really relevant and incuded in this post.
