Is TrustPro QTSP an EU Qualified Trust Service Provider
TrustPro is an EU Qualified Trust Service Provider providing Qualified Electronic Signature and Qualified e-Seal valid across Europe.
How do I know if a company is a truly qualified Trust Service Provider?
Qualified Trust Services Provider in Europe are listed in national ‘trusted lists’ in all European Union.
Those lists can be accessed through the Trusted List Browser, an online tool provided by the European Commission to ease the process of finding trust services.
Does TrustPro Qualified e-Seal work with EPREL?
Is TrustPro Qualified e-Seal useful only once for your EPREL organization verification?
No, you need to use it again whatever change is made in your organization.
If the organisation is “Verified” and in the future it changes any data from “General information” (i.e. organisation name, address, etc.), that supplier will become “Unverified” and will have to run the verification process again providing a new seal that matches the new details; all its already Published models will remain visible in Public site searches, but new registrations will not appear in searches until the further verification is passed again.
