9 June – International Archives Day

This international day aims to raise awareness amongst organisations regarding the importance of archiving media, different types of documents and retention periods.

With good management, archives explain and justify the past. They may also contribute to the future actions of an organisation and help ensure its proper function: With triple administrative, legal and testimonial functions the archives allow:

  • Optimised document flow
  • Improved traceability of information
  • Increased performance, efficiency and help reduce costs
  • Conformity with legislation

By correct classification of archives, organisations have clear and efficient access information. As testimony to the past, archiving is also a means of guaranteeing access to information in cases of dispute.

 

Like Mister Archive, Labgroup ensures the proper management of an organisations information throughout its lifecycle.

An efficient Records Management or Archiving solution ensures that an archive is:

  • authentic – ensures the integrity of the information (no modification of the content)
  • traced  full history of the information throughout its lifecycle
  • perennial – ensures the readability of information over time

Labgroup – your partner for analogue and digital archiving management

 

Since 1977, Labgroup has provided information management and archiving services to organisations.

1st February 2017, Lab Luxembourg SA (Labgroup) became the first certified PSDC (Provider of Digitisation and/or Conservation Services), both for digitisation and conservation services. The legislator in Luxembourg anticipated a transformation of physical to digital with the implementation of the Law of the 25th July 2015 on electronic archiving. This law recognises the presumption of conformity given to electronic copies of paper documents, produced and stored by a certified “PSDC”.

This presumption of conformity is under the condition that the copy complies with a set of methodological and technical requirements guaranteeing its fidelity to the original paper document, as well as its non-alteration over time.

Therefore, with a guarantee from the Luxembourg State, the holders of information from all European countries can now entrust Labgroup with both digitisation operations and the storage of documents with legal value.
