Electronic signature
Electronic signature ensure the same level of legal security as handwritten signing. Slow and expensive paper-based approval procedures could be replaced with more rapid and cost-efficient electronic solutions.
Member States shall accept any advanced electronic signature based on a qualified certificate, with or without a secure-signature-creation device, for the completion of the procedures and formalities.
Trusted List
Each Member State shall establish, maintain and publish in accordance with the technical specification a ‘trusted list’ containing the minimum information related to the certification service providers issuing qualified certificates to the public who are supervised/accredited by them.
Purpose of the Trusted List
The purpose of the Trusted List is to establish a common way in which information is provided by each Member State about the supervision/accreditation status of certification services from Certification Service Providers who are supervised/accredited by them for compliance with the relevant provisions of Directive 1999/93/EC. This includes the provision of historical information about the supervision/accreditation status of the supervised/accredited certification services.
Content of the Trusted List
Additional information on other supervised/accredited Certification Service Providers related to electronic signatures (providing Time Stamping Services and issuing Time Stamp Tokens, issuing non-qualified certificates) may be included in the Trusted List at a national level on a voluntary basis.
Forms of the Trusted List
Member States have to establish and publish their Trusted List in a “human readable” form and also a "machine processable" form which would allow automated information retrieval.
Trusted List in business
Trusted List can also be used in Business to Business (B2B) and Business to Consumers (B2C) transactions.

Cross-border electronic signature and Trusted List
Directive 1999/93/EC provides the qualified electronic signature with a specific legal value. However, in the absence of a trusted list the relying party cannot know if a signature is really qualified without investing unreasonable auditing resources. Under those circumstances, a relying party could well argue that it would not be required to recognise a qualified electronic signature.

A Trusted List would eliminate this risk. Certificate providers issuing qualified certificates listed on the Trusted List are by definition supervised, thus their qualified certificates are trustworthy, and thus the legal value of their signatures can no longer be reasonably contested by any relying party.

The elimination of this risk is the goal, effect and legal value of the Trusted Lists.
