Applying for new sign-me certificates which are to be loaded onto the German ID card is no longer compliant with eIDAS requirements so that Bundesdruckerei had to discontinue this option.
Certificates already stored can be used in conjunction with compatible signature application components until they expire.
Bundesdruckerei will soon provide the eIDAS-compliant remote signature based on identification using the online ID function of the German ID card or electronic residence permit.
Please note the following:
- The option to order sign-me certificates for your German ID card from the ReinerSCT shop was suspended on 31 May 2017.
- Up until 30 June 2017, you can still load the certificate you purchased via the sign-me load portal onto your German ID card.
- The sign-me signature portal can be used until 31 December 2017 in order to sign documents online. After this point in time, the application used will no longer be supported by standard browsers. You can use your certificate until the end of its validity term using signature application components from other providers.
