USPTO grants a new patent for its EIDAS notification method

EIDAS is the European regulation that sets the rules in all matters relating to identification and trust services for electronic transactions within the EU.

The United States Patent and Trademark Office has granted Spanish OTCQX-listed company its sixth patent, this time referring to its registered and qualified electronic notification method EIDAS, a key to communicating electronically within the European market. 

This patent bears the name “Platform and method of certification of an electronic notice for electronic identification and trust services” (EIDAS).

The system, created by the company’s founder and CEO, Sisco Sapena, makes it possible to reliably identify the sender, the recipient and the data sent in electronic notifications. 

USPTO guarantees reliable electronic communication within Europe and has been granted for 20 years.

The company USPTO was already a pioneer in securing European homologation for this method in 2018. 

The patent USPTO on the method, which distributes under the trade name Openum eIDAS, is valid for 20 years. 

The Openum EIDAS trademark itself was granted register last year by the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) for ten years.
