The Use Of Electronic Signatures In Chile

The Chilean government has recognized the need for their contract principles to be applied to the Internet medium. As a result, the Chilean government passed electronic signature law which permits the use of electronic contracts online and the signatures that are involved with these types of contracts. The Law No. 19.799 permits the use of certification services, electronic signatures and electronic documents. This law recognizes the enforceability of electronic contracts and electronic signatures and international compatibility of electronic documents that have been issued outside of Chile. This legislation aims to make electronic signature laws uniform in the realm of electronic commerce.
