On 1 March 2019, the Luxembourg government approved a draft law to amend the Law of 14 August 2000 on e-Commerce. The draft law intends to align the current Luxembourg regime on electronic signatures stemming from the e-Commerce law with the Regulation (EU) 910/2014 on electronic identification and trust services for electronic transactions in the internal market (the eIDAS Regulation). As of today, electronic signatures are governed in Luxembourg by the e-Commerce law and the directly applicable eIDAS Regulation. Aligning the definitions and criteria of electronic signatures will clarify the situation in practice and therefore increase trust in the use of electronic signatures in Luxembourg. The draft law has been submitted to the Chamber of Deputies. We will report with any noteworthy updates.
