Before you can provide a legally binding signature with your card, your certificate must be activated. Only after activation can the status of your certificate be checked in the directory service. If you received your certificate by e-mail, activation takes place via the website.

Here, the following information is required: name, card number, certificate series number (your qualified certificate that you want to activate). If your card was sent by post, please fill in the attached “Confirmation of receipt” form and return it to us together with a copy of your PKS order.
