By completing the Cross Certification Notification process with the Telecommunications Regulatory Authority (TRA) of the UAE, eMudhra is now formally authorized to provide electronic signatures and Digital Signature Certificates in UAE.
Expressing his views about the certification, Arvind Srinivasan, Head – Strategic Initiatives and Global Market, eMudhra, says, “UAE has always been very progressive and generally at the forefront of digital transformation through specific strategies such as digital services, paperless transformation, etc. We feel that with this certification, we can better contribute to this vision and journey in a manner that fits within the framework of UAE Regulations around digital certificates. Furthermore, we see great value in bundling this with our emSigner Paperless Office application to offer a comprehensive solution in this post-COVID era to those who need it.”
Digital Certificates are generally issued subject to an identity vetting process that meets global, domain-specific regulations, and are used to assert such identities generally for authenticating oneself or in the course of signing documents digitally. In recent months, digital certificates have grown in popularity due to the necessity to drive paperless, presence-less user journeys arising out of COVID-19 related restrictions.
