Electronic signatures are valid confirms Law Commission
Post by Admin , Dec 12, 2019.
In September this year, the Law Commission confirmed that electronic signatures can be used to execute documents, including where there is a statutory requirement for a signature. This means that, in most cases, electronic signatures can be used as a viable alternative to handwritten ones.
Despite an already frequent use of digital signatures by individuals and businesses on contracts every day, the Commission has found that some parties are still uncertain over whether an electronic signature can be used in specific situations.
In the report, the Law Commission has set out a simple statement of the law to end that uncertainty and increase confidence in the use of this technology.
Commercial and Common Law Commissioner, Stephen Lewis, said:
“Electronic signatures can offer quicker and easier transactions for businesses and consumers.
“Our report aims to provide an accessible statement of the law which makes it clear that an electronic signature can generally be used in place of a handwritten signature as long as the usual rules on signatures are met.”
