  New Regulations on Certifiying Authorities for Electronic Signatures

Mexico City, August 23, 2003 – Today, the Federal Official Gazette (Diario Oficial de la Federación published several amendments to the Federal Commercial Code on its chapter on Electronic Commerce with aim of fully regulating certifying authorities and electronic signatures. The amendments aim to give more substance to prior amendments of May 2000, where several provisions on data messages, their implications in contract formation, and their validity as courtroom evidence were incorporated into the Commercial Code, the Federal Civil Code, and the Federal Law on Consumer Protection.

The main principals adhered into the new amendments are: technological neutrality, contractual freedom for the parties, international compatibility, and functional equivalence of data messages with respect to the information contained therein and the electronic signature vis a vis the handwritten signature. While the May 2000 amendments had simply mentioned the notion of an electronic or digital signature, the new amendments elaborate this idea by adopting the provisions of the UNCITRAL Model Law on Electronic Signatures. The new amendments thus give regard to public key infrastructure models and seek to grant the same validity to electronic signatures as that afforded to handwritten signatures.
