  • Ken Chasse


Ken Chasse argues the case that organizations should obtain a legal opinion from a suitably qualified lawyer to ensure it complies with the law and with relevant standards for electronic records management, because digital data is now judged by the reliability of the electronic records – thus ensuring that a digital record is no better than the quality of the records system in which it is recorded or stored

Index words: electronic records management systems; reliability – electronically-produced record; reliability – electronic records system; legal compliance; legal opinion – special knowledge and experience; records management; law of records management.
