Is a digital signature legally enforceable?
Posted by Archie on 27 July 2018 08:56 AM

 

Yes. In recent years, most countries worldwide have adopted legislation and regulations that recognize the legality of a digital signature (standard electronic signatures) and deem it a binding signature. In addition to governments, many industries have established regulations (e.g., FDA 21 CFR Part 11 in the Life Sciences industry) that define digital signatures as a replacement for handwritten signatures.
