On May 6, 2021, the Ministry of Economic Affairs and Digital Transformation of the Government of Spain published Order ETD/465/2021 authorizing Qualified Trust Electronic Service Providers (QTSPs) in Spain to use non-presential identification methods for the issuance of qualified electronic certificates.
This Ministerial Order establishes more than 40 requirements that QTSPs must meet to start using these non-presential video identification tools, which will allow them to speed up the processes of issuing qualified certificates and, thus, increase the demand for this trusted service by a large number of citizens.
How to comply with Order ETD/465/2021?
Veridas wants to facilitate this process to all our customers, so we offer technology and support in more than 30 of the requirements indicated. This involves, among other things:
- Remote video identification tools evaluated by Dekra Testing & Certification, according to the requirements established in Annex F.11 of the CCN-STIC-140 guide published by the National Cryptologic Center. In addition, the characteristics of this technology help to meet other requirements of the Order.
- Training plan for operators in charge of verifying the identity of applicants.
- Certified in information security and data protection impact assessment to assist the QTSP in its risk analysis.
- Management of queries to the Data Verification and Query Service.
- Evidence tampering.
Veridas has carried out an interpretative study of the Order ETD/465/2021 together with Dekra Testing & Certification, an accredited conformity assessment body, in order to provide its customers with complete information to help them comply with all the requirements of the Order, thus obtaining an estimate of the effort required for the implementation of the system..
Veridas commitment to compliance
With this, Veridas, together with Dekra, once again ratifies its commitment to the secure digitalization of all processes that facilitate the procedures of individuals and companies.
Veridas was an active and collaborative part of the process of developing the Order and Annex F.11 of the CCN-STIC-140 guide. Now, we want to facilitate the way for trusted electronic service providers so that implementing these tools in their processes of issuing qualified electronic certificates is agile and can soon reach all citizens.
