Belarus, Russia conclude agreement on recognition of electronic digital signature

MOSCOW, 15 April (BelTA) - Belarus and Russia have concluded an agreement on the recognition of an electronic signature (electronic digital signature) in an electronic document in cross-border electronic interaction. The document was signed by Belarusian Communications and Informatization Minister Konstantin Shulgan and Minister of Digital Development, Communications and Mass Media of the Russian Federation Maksut Shadayev following the talks between the prime ministers of the two countries, Roman Golovchenko and Mikhail Mishustin, in Moscow on 15 April, BelTA has learned. 

Commenting on the agreement, Konstantin Shulgan stated that in Belarus an electronic digital signature has been in use for a long time in electronic document management. "Now we are going electronically in our allied relations. With today's agreement we mutually recognize the electronic signatures of the two states. This things will go quickly and smoothly for business and for state electronic document management," he said. 

The minister noted that such a mechanism in the interaction of business has already been trialed. "It made it possible to shorten the procedure of recognition from months literally to a matter of days," he added. 

It took a long time to prepare the agreement as parties had to resolve a number of technical issues. "I hope the procedures that are necessary to undergo after the agreement has been signed will be completed soon," Konstantin Shulgan said. 

He also added that the agreement is the last step towards making access to public procurement of the two countries fully operational.
