What is the Qualified Electronic Signature required by the Competent Authority?
Operators reporting to Italy
According to the Italian Law on EU-ETS (D.Lgs. 216/2006 etc.), all documents have to sent by email with Qualified Electronic Signature (QES), which means with the digital signature of the Company legal Representative (usually the CEO).
The QES is set by Directive 1999/93/EC of the European Parliament and the Council of December 13, 1999, on a Community framework for electronic signatures. QES demonstrate the identity of people signing an electronic document, with stronger guarantees comparing with "physical" signature on a paper.
Kataclima supports Companies to get QES, with a turn-key proposal, addressed to all Companies including non Italian Airlines and citizens. The proposal includes easy and innovative ways to recognize the identity without the need of Authenticated signature at an Italian Authority (which would be the standard way).
Kataclima offers two simple and very effective options:
- "Business key", a USB key with pre-installed software, to sign any document
- "OTP" (one time password), our preferred and most economical option, applicable on any computer with an internet connection. The device generates a one time password to be used on a web-based platform to quickly sign any document
