Legal admissibility of scanned documents and electronic records
In the event of litigation and legal proceedings, organisations may need to rely on the production of relevant documentary evidence in electronic format. In a court of law, electronic documents have full legal validity, providing their integrity can be demonstrated. This can involve proving that a document has never been modified, or alternatively, organisations can provide details of all actions performed on a document during its lifecycle.
Used in conjunction with organisational best practice procedures, the audit trail logging facility in FileStore EDM helps maintain document integrity and ensure the legal admissibility of scanned documents and electronic records to the BS BIP 0008 standard.
