legally compliant identification and registration for electronic signature
The electronic signature requires a unique identification of the user. Our Smart Registration Service (SRS) enables the coupling of identification with an authentication method for electronic signing without re-identification for each signature. This includes a bundle of various identification methods, e.g. SRS Video, SRS Bank, SRS Direct or SRS eID. The SRS offers a standardised interface that you can flexibly integrate into your workflow to enable your end customers to use electronic signatures. You can find an example of such an integration on our identification page.
With a one-time registration and identification by SRS, your customers can sign multiple times and use the Signing Service. Depending on the identification method, signing can take place over a certain period of time, e.g. 5 years with a video identification. In the signature process, you only use authentication method to express the declaration of intent for the signature.
You choose the most suitable identification methods for your process and offer this to your end customers based on their requirements, matching:
- the legal area EU or Switzerland in which the signature should take place,
- the legal weight of the signature: qualified or advanced
- the technical possibilities that your end customer has.

Face-2- identification in a short time
In addition to the identification methods available in the SRS, our in-house developed and certified Registration Authority (RA) App enables simple and secure face-2-face identification and registration of persons for the use of Signing Service. With the free RA App, the identification and registration process of persons for the electronic signature can be carried out independently by customers and partners.
Setting up an RA agency
To gain access to the free RA App, you conclude a so-called RA Agency Contract with us, which contractually regulates and delegates the activities of the Registration Agent (RA agent). In this contract, a first Registration Agent (RA Agent), a so-called Master RA Agent, is appointed. The Master RA Agent gets first identified and will be trained by Swisscom. Afterwards, the Master Agent can identify other employees of his or her own organisation and promote them as RA Agents or Master RA Agents. The promoted employees automatically go through a short e-learning and can then download the RA App from the common App Stores, log in and start independently with the face-2-face identification of persons for the electronic signature. In addition, the master RA agent receives access to an administration tool of the RA service to carry out the administration of the RA agency.

With the Smart Registration Service as your identification solution, you are choosing the only pan-European service provider that enables legally valid qualified electronic signing, taking into account industry-specific requirements and compliance regulations.
