Poland launches digital signature service. Source:

KIR, Polish national payment processor, teamed up with  PKO Bank Polski to implement the mSzafir digital signature.

According to the statement, mSzafir is a qualified electronic signature using cloud technology. It allows signing all contracts and letters in PDF format, completely remotely, without leaving home.

Besides, KIR will issue a qualified e-signature certificate, available for 15 minutes, which the client will be able to use to sign the document, based on the identity confirmed by the bank.

The exceptional epidemiological situation requires us to limit personal contacts, which hinders us from functioning in every aspect - and private and professional. In many areas of the economy, remote work is becoming the standard. To facilitate effective operation in new circumstances, we decided in cooperation with PKO Bank Polski to make mSzafir available for a one-time use without any fees. Before issuing a "cloud" certificate, you must verify your identity. Now you can do it without leaving your home, using remote verification available at PKO Bank Polski and Inteligo, but we are working intensively that will make the service available to clients of other banks
Piotr Alicki, President of the Management Board of KIR

In addition to that, the mSzafir signature complies with the requirements of eIDAS and has legal force equivalent to a handwritten signature. The digital signature will support remote work, expanding the spectrum of matters that can be dealt with from home as well.
