Physical space as we know it has disappeared from B2B environments. This affects the electronic creation and transmission of documents that are exchanged by companies as well as data retention in electronic format over time. To respond to this need of the intra-community market, the European Union has developed a regulatory framework that provides security for electronic activities that occur in both public and private environments. These security mechanisms are reflected in Regulation 910/2014 (eIDAS) on electronic identification and trust services for electronic transactions in the internal market.
The eIDAS regulation represents an advance in the methods of electronic identification and definitive momentum towards the dematerialization of companies and administrations.
The management of paper documents consumes a multitude of economic resources, which includes employees. However, in order for the digital leap to be carried out with full guarantees and legal validity, it is essential to use qualified trusted services and store documents securely during the time required by legislation or by aspects related to company activities such as the agreements reached with customers, suppliers, employees, etc.
