The Eastern partner countries have a well-developed technological basis when it comes to trust services, but the main difference with EU member states is that each Eastern partner country operates under a different regulatory framework from its counterparts. Enabling cross-border mutual recognition of trust services between the Eastern partner countries and EU member states requires some effort on the harmonisation of regulatory and organisational frameworks, in order to achieve the required compatibility level when it comes to readiness for mutual recognition between Eastern partner countries.
