Electronic signature process

 

Recently new regulations were introduced to temporarily enable legal documents to be signed and/or witnessed remotely via electronic and audio-visual links in order to reduce face-to-face contact during the current COVID-19 situation. 
You can now execute and witness SUPERCentral documents electronically.
