First, the approval flow in question is designed: The steps, people and conditions that the flow requires are determined. Once the document issuer completes this, the flow is put into operation. The chosen recipient gets an email with a link to access the approval and signature environment. Here, they can consult, approve, sign and download the document.
Throughout this process, the senders of the document can see the document's status—whether or not it has been consulted, whether or not the recipient has given their agreement, whether or not any action has been taken, and so on.
For each event that occurs with the document, evidence is generated for the "Evidence Report", electronically signed by EDICOM as a Trusted Service Provider. The Evidence Report has evidentiary value in the event of any requirement or dispute.
