Israel enacted its Electronic Signature Law in 2001. The E-Sign Law was drafted taking into account comparative law and technical standards in the field of digital signatures. A major source of inspiration was the Directive 1999/93/EC of the European Parliament and of the Council of 13 December 1999 on a Community framework for electronic signatures.
The Certification Authorities Registrar in the Israeli Law, Information, and Technology Authority, in the Ministry of Justice is the regulatory authority according to the law.
