Peru’s Indecopi includes EDICOM in Trusted Services List

18/11/2016

The National Institute for Defence of Competition and Protection of Intellectual Property (Indecopi) acknowledges the EDICOM Certificate Authority as issuer of digital certificates for Peru. This recognition allows the use of these certificates in e-invoicing processes in force in the country.




The EDICOM Certification Authority is now on the Trusted Service List (TSL) of the National Institute for the Defence of Competition and Protection of Intellectual Property (Indecopi). This list includes the Digital Certification Service Provider Entities (PSCs) that have passed the approval tests authorizing them as trusted providers of certain services, such as issuance of digital certificates.

In addition to this capacity to issuing process e-invoices in the international scope, EDICOM also provides specific certificate issuing services, crucial in the e-signature processes like those applied in Peru’s “Compliant e-Invoicing” system. EDICOM’s International e-Invoicing Platform is thus consolidated as an all-round, comprehensive solution able to provide all the services companies may require when issuing this type of documents in accordance with the technical specifications set by the National Customs and Tax Administration (SUNAT).

Use of Electronic Payment Receipts (Comprobantes de Pago Electrónicos), as the e-invoice is designated in Peru, has seen ongoing growth since 2014. In this sense the Peruvian authorities have set a calendar for joining the e-invoicing system will gradually be extended to 100% of the country’s businesses.

Integrity and authenticity of the payment receipt are assured by means of an e-signature generated from a certificate issued by one of the trusted entities approved by Indecopi. The list of approved agencies currently includes around twenty Peruvian providers and eight foreign certification authorities, with EDICOM among them.

Inscription in the TSL is done in accordance with the rulings set forth in the Law on Digital Signatures and Certificates, providing additional levels of security in the processing of any document signed electronically.
