Yes! Since the PRC electronic signature law, enacted in 2004, e signatures have been recognized as legal, provided that they adhere to certain criteria.
Chinese courts must be able to verify the following in order for electronic signatures to hold legal validity:
- Data from the signature is used for the e signature and owned exclusively by the signatory
- Data made by the e signature is controlled only by the electronic signatory at the time of signing
- Any alteration to either the signature and/or corresponding data after signing, can be identified
