Regula Elevates Its Industry Standing by Securing Full Membership with the European Telecommunications Standards Institute

As a full member of ETSI, Regula has taken on an active role in shaping the future of standards for Information and Communications Technology (ICT). This status enables the company to drive innovation, while defining the requirements for the secure identity verification (IDV) process in general, and the creation of Qualified Electronic Signatures (QES) in particular.

ETSI, renowned for its role in establishing globally acceptable standards for ICT-enabled systems, applications, and services, provides a transparent collaborative platform for members to influence industry-wide standards. Regula's full membership facilitates direct involvement in the standardization process, enabling the company to advocate for technologies and practices that enhance security, interoperability, and innovation in IDV.

As part of the global ETSI member organization community, which includes universities, research bodies, associations, and public authorities, as well as industry-related companies, Regula will get access to a wealth of knowledge in ICT. At the same time, the company will get an opportunity to contribute to global know-how, making a significant input with its three decades of expertise in forensics and IDV solutions development.

"We are excited about the opportunities ETSI membership presents for Regula and the IDV industry as a whole. However, it is not just an honor; it's a responsibility. As the only company that brings forensic-level expertise to customers of IDV solutions, we uniquely position ourselves with an in-house approach that sets our standards exceptionally high. This distinction enables us to not only meet but exceed the expectations of our clients and the industry as a whole. We are well equipped and committed to contributing to the evolution of global ICT standards, ensuring that our solutions reflect the pinnacle of innovation and quality," says Henry Patishman, Executive VP of Identity Verification solutions at Regula.
