The scope of the bodies providing e-governance services has significantly expanded in the past decade. Electronic identification has become an elementary obligation of the clients in eprocedures, as this is the starting point of any legal electronic transaction.
In Hungary, this legal issue is generally regulated by the Act CCXXII of 2015 on the General Rules for Trust Services and Electronic Transactions, and the related Government Decree 451/2016. (XII. 19.) on the details of electronic administration procedures. These national rules have been adjusted to the provisions of the Regulation (EU) No. 910/2014 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 23 July 2014 on electronic identification and trust services for electronic transactions in the internal market and repealing Directive 1999/93/EC (hereinafter: eIDAS Regulation).
