“The digital signature system has been designed with the highest information security standards approved by Dubai’s Telecommunications and Digital Government Regulatory Authority (TDRA),” RTA said on Wednesday.

Mohammed Al Mudharreb, CEO of Corporate Technology Support Services Sector, RTA, noted: “The digital signature system was launched last year to process and follow-up transactions in a speedy and highly efficient manner.

Digitisation drive

Al Mudharreb added: “RTA will steadily add improvements to the system to enable it to meet the needs of the public and match the digitisation drive. The digital signature system fits well with Dubai’s Paperless Strategy aimed to have paper-free transactions in future and a full transformation into a paperless government. It will abolish more than a billion pieces of paper used in government transactions each year.”
