About eIDAS 2.0

eIDAS 2.0, the latest iteration of the EU's Electronic Identification and Trust Services regulation, represents a significant step forward in shaping the future of digital identity in Europe. It provides a unified framework centred on Digital Identity Wallets. It enhances security, simplifies identity management, and boosts trust across all sectors.

All Member States must ensure a European Digital Identity Wallet (EDIW) offering to citizens by mid-2026. Government services and many services in the private sector will be obliged to accept the EDIW during 2027, and the goal is that 80% of Europeans will use an EDIW by 2030.

Formal adoption of eIDAS 2.0 is in early 2024, but implementation has already started with four large-scale pilot projects, where Signicat participates in two of them. Join our webinar to learn how to leverage eIDAS 2.0 for business benefits and compliance.
