In reference to all types of institutions, it is advisable to check by the electronic signature user whether systems, applications or applets are used with the feature of submission and verification of a qualified signature (e.g. ESP, EZD, ERP, other ...). In this case, it may be necessary to install an update or contact with the producer to determine update release or the conditions for receiving an update for support of the signature with the SHA-2 hash function.
Note: All signing and stamping applications used in various systems and services after 1st of July 2018 must form signatures by calculating hash of the signed documents using the SHA-2 function, regardless of whether the signature used by the signer was stamped with the SHA-1 or SHA-2 shortcut.
