SRC receives accred­i­tation for Conformity Assessment Body (KBS) according to ISO 17065

Last month, the German Accred­i­tation Body (DAkkS) granted SRC Security Research & Consulting GmbH accred­i­tation for its Confomity Assessment Body (KBS) according to ISO 17065.

This accred­i­tation applies to the confomity assessment of (qualified) trust service providers who wish to have trust services qualified in accor­dance with the require­ments of Regulation (EU) No. 910/2014 (eIDAS).

The eIDAS Regulation contains binding Europe-wide regula­tions in the fields of “Electronic Identi­fi­cation” and “Electronic Trust Services”. The Regulation creates a uniform framework for the cross-border use of electronic means of identi­fi­cation and trust services.

As an EU regulation, it is directly applicable law in all 28 EU member states as well as in the European Economic Area.
