How to establish a trust with Statoil to enable Electronic Signing of data sent to Statoil
Statoil accepts that electronic signatures may be used as an alternative to written signatures, provided that the issuer of certificates for electronic signatures is on the “Trusted List” issued by the Norwegian Post and Telecommunications Authority or any equivalent trusted list issued by any similar authority within the European Economic Area. Statoil will on a case by case basis at its own discretion accept an issuer of electronic certificates not on “Trusted Lists", after having been given access to the issuer’s certificate policy, certificate practice statement and an audit report verifying that the issuer is acting in accordance with such documents. If subsequently there has been a significant change to the issuers system for electronic signatures or if Statoil so reasonably requires, this mechanism shall be reapplied.
Please send the following information to Statoil by this email-address:
- Certificate policy
- Certificate practice statement
- Audit report
- Contact person in your company
- Contact person in Statoil
- Any special conditions, if applicable
Statoil will evaluate the request and implement the trust, so that incoming electronic signatures are successfully validated by our applications.
