JCCI launches e-Authentication service
Jeddah, April 4, 2011
Jeddah Chamber of Commerce and Industry (JCCI) has launched an E-Authentication & Certification Service, which will be integrated with 'Yesser', the e-Government program in Saudi Arabia.
The new system was launched as part of the process of developing e-government applications in Saudi Arabia. It was facilitated by Council of Saudi Chambers of Commerce and Industry (CSCCI) request to incorporate the new system in Yesser programs.
The new digital service will allow JCCI members to use an easy and well-secured authentication process for verifying official documents and signatories. The service also protects authenticated documents from fraud and misrepresentation and protects the interests of business people and chamber members who will get the required services quickly and in full confidentially.
Under the system, an authorised user in a JCCI member-company can verify his Dynamic Signature, which demonstrates legally the user intent, in a very secure environment. These electronically enrolled signatures are used to approve sensitive certified legal documents over the internet. These certified documents can be sent to the party concerned by email or stored in the database of the party concerned. The user can also simply download the certified document from the internet to their USB memory stick.
The new e-authentication & certification (Tasdeeq) service also cuts transportation and courier costs as well as time spent in waiting at certification offices. At JCCI in particular, it will reduce crowding and ensure quick and easy, around-the-clock services.-TradeArabia News Service
