The Polish Insurance Association, together with professional organizations like PIIT (Polish Association of Information Technology and Telecommunications) and PTI (Polish Society of Computer Sciences) has maintained a negative stance on the draft amendments to the Law on electronic signatures.
In the opinion of the Polish Insurance Association, the proposal of the Ministry of Economy concerning the introduction of new signature  certificates is neither justified, legal nor economic. According to the Board some solutions proposed in the project may affect the competitiveness of the market and may have a negative impact on the functioning of electronic signatures in information insurance systems.

With this amendment the Board expects that regulatory barriers to reduce costs and increase the possibility of using currently available forms and electronic signature services by insurance companies and citizens.
