These universal standards about authentication certainly make the authentication process simple. Therefore, someone can easily have a document from one country recognized in another country. For example, if you are purchasing a piece of property in Ecuador, but are currently living in Idaho, you can have your signed sale agreement authenticated with the state of Idaho.
