Electronic and digital signature laws and regulations in the United States

With such a rich digital trust history, it’s easy to understand why the United States has one of the most complex landscapes of laws and regulations regarding digital signatures, PKI and data protection.

All of Ascertia’s products and services adhere to the current US legislations concerning digital trust infrastructures. You can rest assured that your business is complying with all relevant local, federal, and international data protection and electronic signature laws when you choose Ascertia.

The United States’ PKI, data privacy and electronic signature regulations and laws as of 2023:

  • The Electronic Signatures in Global and National Commerce Act (E-Sign Act) – This 2000 federal law gives electronic signatures the same legal weight as handwritten ones in most scenarios. It promotes ecommerce and clarifies the enforceability of electronically signed documents.
  • Uniform Electronic Transactions Act (UETA) – Adopted in 47 states, UETA complements ESIGN and clarifies how electronic records and signatures are handled in legal proceedings. It covers aspects such as attribution, correction, and admissibility of evidence.
  • State-specific esignature laws – While ESIGN pre-empts inconsistent state laws, some states like Illinois, New York, and Washington have their own regulations for specific situations.
  • Federal Trade Commission Act (FTC Act)– Empowers the FTC to enforce consumer protection regulations and address unfair or deceptive practices involving personal data.
  • Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) – Protections personally identifiable healthcare information.
  • Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act (GLBA) – Protections financial information collected by financial institutions.
  • FDA 21 CFR Part 11 Governs eSignatures in the Pharmaceutical industry. State-specific data protection legislation – Several states, including California, Virginia, and Connecticut, have enacted comprehensive data privacy laws. These laws grant individuals certain rights regarding their personal data, such as the right to access, correct, and delete it.
