The Public Registry signed an agreement with four government institutions to become part of the national Digital Electronic Signature.
Luis Barrios, Public Registry’ Director, said the program will be implemented in the judiciary, the National Land Authority (Anati), the College of Notaries Public and Procurement Directorate.
He added that these four entities are part of a pilot plan to integrate it to all government institutions and civil society.
Barría said that befre ending 2011, the four institutions should already have implemented this digital system. “With this new program we’ll remove the signature on paper, ” he said.
He also noted that the digital signature is safer to which we are accustomed. The pilot scheme had a cost of four million dollars.
