Abstract/Citation: The new law aims to enhance e-commerce by clarifying the legal framework for doing business online or for making contracts via electronic means of communication. Moreover, the law affords to electronic records the same legal value as documents made in writing. As such, ledgers and other book-keeping obligations can be satisfied by electronic records, provided such records meet certain security and technical requirements.

Repeals Law No. 85 of 2001 concerning Electronic Transactions.
