Electronic archiving with probative value

Nowadays both people and assets are protected by data protection. We must be in a position to provide proof of the authenticity of a document or electronic information at all times. In order to satisfy the compliance regulations, documents have to be conserved for a defined period.

The Imprimerie Nationale Group’s electronic archiving guarantees the conservation of the probative value of electronic documents, by meeting the requisite of four fundamental criteria of the civil code: integrity, intelligibility, permanence and identification.

The Imprimerie Nationale Group’s electronic archiving with probative value offers the possibility of conserving documents for long periods while making them accessible at any time.

The Imprimerie Nationale Group’s SIAF approval authorises us to manage and conserve public archives.

  • Securing and storing data in France
  • Highlighting and tracking information
  • Conserving the probative value on a high security site
  • Making data durable
  • Complying with the standards and reducing the risk of loss of authentic data
