Digital records management systems

Type of document:
International Standard
ISO 16175-2, "Principles and functional requirements for records in electronic office environments -- Part 2: Guidelines and functional requirements for digital records management systems," is applicable to products that are often termed "electronic records management systems" or "enterprise content management systems". It uses the term digital records management systems for those software applications whose primary function is records management. It does not seek to set requirements for records still in use and held within business systems. Digital objects created by email, word processing, spreadsheet and imaging applications (such as text documents, and still or moving images), where they are identified to be of business value, are managed within digital records management systems which meet the functional requirements established in ISO 16175-2.
