Luxembourg – Draft law on e-archiving

Long awaited, the draft law on the dematerialisation and preservation of documents is still passing through the adoption process.

As a step toward the future, on 17 December 2014, the governmental council (Conseil du gouvernement) adopted the draft Grand-Ducal Regulation on conditions to be respected by the "providers of dematerialisation or storage services" in order to be certified by the Luxembourg Institute of Standardization, Accreditation, Safety and Quality of Products and Services (ILNAS), which should be submitted to the opinion of the Council of State afterwards.

The Luxembourg Chamber of Commerce welcomes the draft Grand-Ducal Regulation by stating that it will reinforce the attractiveness of Luxembourg which will become an "Information Trust Center".
