Following a vast discussion around the introduction of new system of electronic trust services in Ukraine in 2017-2018, it is important to understand its legal features correctly. Being a huge step in the establishment of e-government in Ukraine, primarily inspired by the Estonian model, current regulation still does not satisfy all of requirements, but opens the area for creativity.
Inter alia, electronic identification system using bankID gives an opportunity to be identified during receipt of certain kinds of bank services, but not the right to sign any types of documents like contracts, acts, etc yet. The latter though can be performed by the most protected level of “qualified electronic sign/seal” which is already provided by mobileID in some cases.
Moreover, some types of e-government and registrar services are still limited due to the need for notarization of attached documents.
“Nevertheless, the new Law grants even such kind of opportunity, and we’re sure a solution for electronic notarization is coming soon too”, assures Dmitriy Makiyan in his commentary exclusively for the Ukrainian Journal of Business Law.
