Background:

This year ENISA in collaboration with the European Commission, is launching a Forum bringing together the three stakeholder communities in the qualified trust service market: trust service providers, conformity assessment bodies and supervisory authorities. The creation of this Forum has been motivated by the need for open discussion after the entry into force of the Regulation 910/2014 on electronic identification and trust services for electronic transactions in the internal market.

The Regulation has introduced new provisions that will facilitate harmonization and EU wide recognition of trust service providers, ensuring homogenous security levels and increasing market transparency. The eIDAS Regulation also foresees a permanent supervision of qualified providers, as well as periodical audits by conformity assessment bodies.

The aim is for providers to be able to discuss with regulatory and supervisory authorities how to facilitate compliance by aligning regulatory developments with the current market good practices, and how to increase market penetration of qualified trust services, as it is key to ensure a viable business model for qualified trust service providers, through an increased use of these services among European citizens, businesses and public administrations.
