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.
