In the 21st century, digitization of information has obtained a major impact on business operations in all economic sectors. Information has become a more and more valuable asset for companies and needs to be managed securely, from creation to archiving. Digital preservation has become a crucial topic involving technological, organizational and procedural changes to keep integrity and value of information.
To ensure the chain of trust to its final step and to preserve the value of documents through time, every organization has to implement a digital archiving solution. The Belgian Digital Act offers new opportunities by defining a legal framework for digital archiving that provides legal value to digitally archived documents. The use of international standards is one of the requirements to manage information lawfully in a qualified archiving system.
The Open Archival Information System (OAIS) model is doubtless one of the best standards to implement digital archiving and is recommended to build Digital Act compliant qualified archiving solutions.
