I think this would fulfill the requirements, yes. But given that it’s all government software and not as advanced as the Estonian stuff, it would be an extremely uncomfortable process:
When the company director signs a digitally signed document, what happens? In the Estonian case, a
.bdocfile inside a
.bdocfile. In other cases, probably different ways of packaging packages, each needing a different software to extract and view?
Last time I looked, the German digital signature scheme (as an example) was a disaster. First, for online use they would provide the browser extensions only for certain “long term support” versions of Firefox. Then, in addition to having the ID card with the chip, one had to “rent” and then install ones own signature on the card, for a certain yearly fee. And then buy the software that allows to sign documents, from one of several providers.
Even with the Estonian eID scheme, we had numerous difficulties of installing the extensions etc… It will be worse in other countries, esp. regarding Mac and Linux support …
Since the European Commission does not enforce using the national schemes for legally valid digital signatures, various other ways are possible. Probably even a PGP signed e-mail with the FreeAgent timesheet.
