Products for electronic signature and the transmission of electronic documents
The Amending Order expands the territorial scope of application of an existing order. The Order thus amended regulates the submission of electronic documents to the system of administrative courts in Bavaria. It stipulates which channels and which file formats can be used and requires the use of qualified electronic signatures or certain secure channels for submission in a manner replacing the written form.
The Order also does not contravene the amended version of Regulation (EU) No. 910/2014 of the European Parliament and of the Council on electronic identification and trust services for electronic transactions in the internal market (eIDAS Regulation). For submission not in written form, no higher requirements shall be laid down than a qualified electronic signature. The eIDAS Regulation applies directly insofar as each qualified electronic signature based on member state certification is recognised by the courts.
