    Director of Digital Signature Certificates, Barquero Alexander, explained that the guideline from April this year, signed by then President Laura Chinchilla, is looking to achieve efficiency and improve service institutions.

    The chief noted that there are 10,000 new digital signatures every three months, exceeding the projected growth.

    There are 85,000 members in the country with digital signatures who can take advantage of 45 public service institutions. To Barquero, the main challenge is to change the paradigm of having a paper copy in hand to the realization that digital documents are also valuable.

    For this, he urged that institutions must make that transformation and push citizens towards this option.
