What is ESIGN?
Answer by Richard Insley, BOL Guru

QUESTION: What is e-signing?

ANSWER: Perhaps this question should be "what is ESIGN"? If so, the answer is the federal "Electronic Signatures in Global and National Commerce Act of 2000", Pub. L. No. 106-229, 114 Stat. 464 (2000) (codified at 15 U.S.C. 7001 et seq.) If the question instead relates to the act of signing a document electronically, the answer would be controlled by ESIGN or your state's UETA (Uniform Electronic Transactions Act).
