Discussing Legislative Initiatives Related to Digital Signatures

TIAR Center participated in a meeting with representatives of the Skolkovo Competence Center for Legislative Regulation under the Digital Economy Program. It was dedicated to legislative initiatives pertaining to digital signature and electronic document workflow. Most often, sharing platforms do not obtain a paper copy of the original document with physical signatures of parties involved in a transaction over the platform. However, many government institutions only accept paper documentation in any legal cases, such as when one party files a lawsuit against the other. The goal of the meeting was to discuss the amendments being currently drawn up in order to address this problem. You can read more about the meeting here.
