Moldova looks set to increase the validity of electronic signatures from one to two years, with no additional cost, in a move aimed to meet business demands.
Finance Minister Sergiu Puşcuţa told a Cabinet meeting last week that he had discussed the issue with the Information Technology and Cyber Security Service, and the decision would be taken within a week.
The Minister said anyone holding an electronic signature would be able to choose its term of validity. Asked by Prime Minister Ion Chicu if the validity of the electronic signature would at no additional cost, Sergiu Pușcuţa said this issue would be discussed, but most likely, yes. The Prime Minister said he supported extending the electronic signature to two years at no more cost than the current one year.
