Legal Admissibility

Legal Admissibility

“Will my scanned data stand up to legal scrutiny if challenged?”

“Can original documents be securely destroyed after they have been scanned and are the digital copies as good as having the originals if needed in any kind of litigation scenario?”

These are questions commonly asked by organisations looking into digitising their hard copy paperwork and they are important questions. The answer is ‘yes’ providing that the scanning supplier is accredited to BS 10008 2014: Evidential Weight and Legal Admissibility of Electronic Information and produces a ‘true copy’ of the original file.

According to BSI, accreditation to BS10008: ‘is designed to help you verify and authenticate all your information to avoid the legal pitfalls of information storage’.

For more information on BS10008, visit the BSI Group website.
