Title: UNCITRAL Model Law on Electronic Signatures with Guide to Enactment
Available From: http://www.uncitral.org/uncitral/en/uncitral_texts/electronic_commerce/1996Model.html
Conclusion Date: 2001-12-12
Description: The Model Law aims to bring a measure of legal certainty in the use of electronic signatures. "Building on the flexible principle contained in article 7 of the UNCITRAL Model Law on Electronic Commerce, it establishes a presumption that, where they meet certain criteria of technical reliability, electronic signatures shall be treated as equivalent to hand-written signatures. In establishing that presumption, the Model Law follows a technology-neutral approach and avoids favouring the use of any-specific technical product." (See UNCITRAL Electronic Commerce Page.) The Guide to Enactment was prepared to assist legislatures, executive bodies and courts in understanding and selecting provisions of the Model Law for inclusion in national legislation.
