What is an electronic document?
An electronic document is a document carried by electronic, logical and visual media.

What is a Digital Signature?
It is the affixing of a digital signature certificate that cryptographically secures an electronic file, thus proving the origin, the authenticity of the signer, and confirm the integrity of the signed document.

What is a Digital Signature certificate? 
It is a computer artefact issued and cryptographically protected by a Certificate Authority (Notarius) attesting to the veracity of the information declared in the certificate. This information may include:

  • Full name;
  • Email address.
  • Professional title;
  • Membership number;
  • Public key,
  • Validity period and the serial number of their certificate.
Members who wish to avail themselves of an APEGS Digital Seal will begin the process of creating electronic originals and authenticate final document using proven technology solutions that meet government standards and archiving best practices for electronic files.
