The EU4Digital experts have developed a Legal and technical maturity assessment of Trust and eID services in the Eastern partner countries as a part of the Trust and Security thematic area, which assesses the compatibility of partner countries’ regulatory framework in Digital Trust and identification services (eID) with the eIDAS regulation and existing international accepted standards.

Additionally, the assessment explores the maturity of the Digital trust and eID services from the regulatory, organisational and technical perspectives, in order to identify the measures that need to be adopted to enable cross-border mutual recognition of trust and electronic eID services between the EU and the Eastern partner countries.
