Digital signatures are legally valid in Australia as per the Electronic Transactions Act.

These specifications are governed by Australian federal law and state laws but the validity of the signature remains the same. Digital signatures go one step above e-signatures and seal the document with tamper-proof certificates and audit trails.Check our Legality guide
