International agreements


 

In a 21st century society, facing the market globally is an inescapable requirement. Ensuring the technical and legal interoperability of the electronic signature is essential. 

The dematerialization of processes is unstoppable and, therefore, providing legal security to documents and electronic transactions regardless of where the operators are located is the challenge that must be faced.  

Most countries already have certificate issuers and, therefore, at the local level can already use electronic signature to provide legal security to electronic transactions. Unfortunately, the scope of this legal evidence is geographically limited to the scope of the legal jurisdiction in which the CA operates. Generally, the paradox occurs when electronic signatures stamped on a document are only partially valid, that is to say, each party in the country in which it resides. 

The reality is that today the relationships are international, and the electronic signature is called to provide legal security to documents and transactions in which the operators are citizens of different countries and, in turn, the certificates they use are issued by officially accredited CAs in other countries. To solve this technological and legal challenge, ANF AC has developed an International Recognition Agreement of Electronic Signature Certificates. 

Argentina, Mexico, and the Dominican Republic are already part of this agreement.
