EUROCHAMBRES Position Paper on the Framework for a European Digital Identity

21/09/2021

EUROCHAMBRES welcomes the proposal for a framework for a European Digital Identity as an important step to secure digital identification. A trusted and secure electronic ID, based on commonly agreed standards, would be a useful tool for citizens, businesses and authorities alike. However, to achieve a true breakthrough for digital documents in Europe, Member States should be required to accept them as fully equivalent to traditional documents.
