BS10008 more than a scanning solution!

//BS10008 more than a scanning solution!

Last month DataSpace’s Operations Director Frank Butcher and Quality Manager Kelli Isherwood were invited to give a presentation to the North West Regions NHS Trust Records Manager meeting.  The presentation highlighted the importance of BS10008 and discussed the requirements for BS10008 compliance.  BS10008 is of key importance within the current Records Management sphere due to the high volume of data being digitised in a forever technologically advancing world.  BS10008 is the British Standard that outlines the best practice for the management, transferal and storage of electronic data and for Evidential Weight and Legal Admissibility of Electronic Information.
