Dubai: International Financial Centre Courts Approves E-seal

The Dubai International Financial Centre (DIFC) Courts has announced it has approved the launch of an e-seal.

It follows their acquisition of the qualified electronic seal solution Ethaq.

This is a paperless initiative which enables digital authenticity of documents supported by the UAE PASS together with Smart Dubai. This is the secure national digital identity platform for the UAE.

It provides an end-to-end signing solution which combines both electronic seal and e-signature solution based on digitally verifiable identities.

It is powered by Dubai Electronic Security Centre and its Root Certificate Authority. The Courts are the first Dubai entity to acquire the entirely paperless certificate which enables court documents to be electronically signed, issued and authenticated.

It will also reinforce the security and integrity of the documentation and prevent official documents from being tampered with. It will enable users to digitally verify the authenticity of any legal documents through the DIFC Courts website.

The functionality will be implemented in phases.

It will initially be rolled out for all court user service documents, like DIFC Courts Judgments and Orders. It will then be rolled out for all internal and operational documentation in the Courts.
