.EDOC is Electronically Certified Document

An EDOC file is an electronically certified document saved in the EDOC format, which is a popular format in Latvia used to protect and verify the identity of sensitive files. It contains a document, which may include one or more attached files and one or more digital signatures. EDOC files also store metadata describing the properties of the document, such as the creator, the creation time, the last modification time, and the EDOC format version.

You can attach a variety of files to an EDOC file, such as documents, spreadsheets, images, and videos. However, users typically attach office documents, like .PDF, .DOC, .DOCX, .XLS, and .XLSX files, to an EDOC file.

To add a signature to an EDOC file, you must have an eParaksts electronic signature smartcard from the Latvia State Radio and Television Center (LVRTC) or an eID identity card from the Office of Citizenship and Migration Affairs (OCMA). There are varying levels of signatures you can add to an EDOC file:

  • Basic signature - A signature without a time stamp and no verification information.
  • Signature with a time stamp - A signature with a time stamp but no verification information.
  • Fully verified signature - A signature with a time stamp and verification information.

Once you add a signature to the EDOC file, you can no longer attach files to or remove files from the EDOC file. However, you can still view or export the attached files.
