A copy of the new draft of the identity management legal rules just released by UNCITRAL, titled “Draft Provisions on the Use and Cross-border Recognition of Identity Management and Trust Services,” is available on the UNCITRAL site, along with prior versions and other relevant documents, at https://uncitral.un.org/en/working_groups/4/electronic_commerce. It is document A/CN.9/WG.IV/WP.162.

This new draft is based on the results of the November 2019 UNCITRAL meeting in Vienna. It will be discussed by UNCITRAL at its April 6 – 9 meeting in New York.
