SEFIRA has complied with legal requirements and has become a qualified trust service provider with the new qualified OBELISK Validator QTS validation service.

The OBELISK Validator QTS service provided by SEFIRA ensures the validation of electronic signatures and seals. The outcome of the validation performed is a detailed validation report in PDF or XML format, which contains the result of verifying all the signature attributes and properties required by the ETSI specifications. The output also includes validation data collected as part of the verification process.

During the second quarter of 2019, the service underwent a successful audit of the Electrotechnical Testing Institute for compliance with Regulation (EU) No 910/2014 of the European Parliament and of the Council on electronic identification and confidence-building services for electronic transactions in the internal market.

As the supervisory body for trust service providers within the meaning of Article 17 of the eIDAS Regulation, the Ministry of the Interior of the Czech Republic has granted SEFIRA the status of Qualified Trust Service Provider and OBELISK Validator QTS Qualified Trust Service Status.

Qualified status of the OBELISK Validator QTS service has been published in the Czech Trust-service Status List: https://tsl.gov.cz/publ/TSL_CZ.xtsl.
