Within the EPREL Workspace, a section called «List of Trust Service Providers confirming support of qualified legal person certificates that allow generating qualified electronic seals for EPREL organization verification» has been published.
This is a list of Qualified Certification Service Providers (a subset of the full list of Qualified Certification Service Providers of the European Union), who have explicitly expressed to the European Commission their interest in providing qualified legal entity certificates for qualified electronic seals for use in the manner required by EPREL.
This list has been compiled exclusively to make it easier for suppliers of electrical equipment to select qualified trust service providers providing the desired «specific» service for EPREL. It may be that other Qualified Trusted Service Providers not on this list could also issue certificates suitable for this use.
As this is an open market, with the possibility to act cross-border, any Qualified Trust Service Provider established in any European country can, in principle, issue the certificate to an electrical equipment supplier established in a different country.
The providers currently included in this list are the following:
ANF Autoridad de Certificación Asoc., Bank-Verlag GmbH, Digisign S.A., DigitalSign Certificadora Digital S.A., Disig, a.s., European Agency of Digital Trust S.L. (EAD Trust), First certification autority, a.s., Intesi Group SpA, Quelified e-Seal, Krajowa Izba Rozliczeniowa S.A., Microsec zrt., Sectigo Europe sl, SEP Bulgaria JSC, SK ID Solutions, Trans Sped, TrustPro QTSP and UANATACA S.A.
Of all of them, I highlight, of course, EADTrust, European Agency of Digital Trust S.L. which includes a help service (in English and Spanish) for companies interested in registering their products in EPREL, which is sometimes a difficult task, especially the first time it is attempted.
