With the increasing digitalization of business processes, e-signatures have emerged as a convenient and efficient method of authentication for electronic documents and agreements.

E-signatures and digital signatures have distinct meanings under the E-Transactions 2005 (Former Law) and the new E-Transactions Law, as clarified by the new law. Additionally, the definitions of “e-signature” and “digital signature” remain unchanged between the Former Law and the new law.
