Is DocuSign Legal in my Country?
How does DocuSign help meet legal requirements?
DocuSign has been developed to meet the legal requirements of the U.S. ESIGN Act and other country laws, by allowing users to:
- Verify signer identities with multiple forms of authentication
- Confirm signer intent to sign electronically
- Link signatures to signers and documents
- Record all important document and signature activities
- Allow ongoing, secure access to DocuSign documents
- Protect documents with tamper-seals that use a combination of secure system processes and PKI (Public Key Infrastructure) technology
The DocuSign eSignature Legality Guide is the result of legal research into the laws and practices regarding eSignature on a country-by-country basis. Each country-level analysis was conducted by local law firms located in that country, in that country’s local language. This legal analysis was then supplemented with complementary research on eSignature and digital signature technology standards conducted by independent technology experts. Together, this information is provided as a public resource to understand eSignature legality, and clarify some of the common misconceptions about international eSignature legality.
