Giusella Finocchiaro was re-elected President of the IV Working Group on Electronic Commerce of the United Nations Commission on International Trade Law (UNCITRAL).

The election was held during the 55th session of the Working Group which took place from 24th to 28th of April 2017 in New York. At the same time the Working Group initiated its work on the legal issues related to Identity Management and Trust Services.

Under the presidency of Giusella Finocchiaro, the group of experts is required to develop the first drafts about Digital Identification systems which should concern both multi-party and two-party identity systems and natural and legal persons’ identity, without excluding consideration of digital objects.

The Commission’s mandate also concerns Trust Services which will immediately be taken into consideration working out their definitions.

The United Nations Commission on International Trade Law (UNCITRAL) has just published the official report on the last meeting of the Working Group on Electronic Commerce.Giusella Finocchiaro took part in the official meeting as the representative of Italy. The topic is a possible legislation on electronic transferable records. Here are some of the key issues raised before the UN group.

-Is there a market demand for international rules governing electronic transferable records?

-Should such rules cover both negotiable instruments and documents of title?

-What should the rules be? Should the UN leave room for both “digital objects” that can satisfy the requirements to be unique and transferable, and registers of title interests in the underlying assets?

- If a register system is chosen, how does one sort out the priorities between the various domestic registries and the eventual international registers?

- Is there a demand for electronic documents or records either at domestic or in international trade?
