9 Baku St. U. L.Rev. 23 (2023)
Article language: English.

Already in the beginning of the 21st century, the electronic apostille emerged. It still confronts a number of challenges in its application. These problems of legal and technical character are the main reason for the states being reticent with it. The main question here is whether the adaptation of the Apostille Convention and establishment of uniform standards for applicability of the electronic apostille could ensure its smooth implementation in member states. To answer this question, the article provides an overview of the forms of verification of foreign public documents, namely legalisation and (e-) apostille. It then examines the regulation of verification of foreign public documents under German law, as well as touches on the problems that hinder the application of the e-APP in the member states. In the last part, the possibility of adaptation of the Apostille Convention to the actual situation and the establishment of uniform requirements for the application of electronic apostille are discussed.
