Digitisation and electronic signatures

France

As the digital transformation takes place, its regulatory framework is changing and becoming more complex. Digitisation – a cause and effect of the digital revolution – is a hot topic in legal news, significantly impacting the organisation of companies. The Macron law (digitisation of invoices), the El Khomri law (electronic payslips), eIDAS European regulations (electronic signature and trust services for electronic transactions) and reform of the French Civil Code (faithful digital copy): these pieces of legislation are creating a new legal framework which is restrictive, but also creates new opportunities.
