Notaries going digital
On 18th January 2012 the EU Commission held a lecture on the progress of the European Digital World initiative. The initiative is to implement a system whereby digital signatures can be used to replace physical signatures and apostilles on documents.
The ability to verify documents digitally will have significant implications in commerce and Notarial practice as will the Identity Assurance Programme being developed by the Government Digital Service.
Heald has been part of a trial of the digital signatory system but currently there is no date set for the system to be used.
