Are you looking for a PSDC-DC in Luxembourg ?
Labgroup, your trusted service provider for legal electronic archiving.
As a third-party archiver for 40 years in Luxembourg, Labgroup had to prepare itself for the future by initiating its digital transformation in the early years of the 21st century. The strategy aimed to be the leading edge in the evolution towards a paperless society. In parallel with investing in a state-of-the-art, highly protected storage and archiving infrastructure, Labgroup has developed a comprehensive and continuously improved Information Security Management System (ISMS).
These efforts to control risks were rewarded in 2014 by obtaining the ISO 27001 international certification (already a first for an archiver in Luxembourg), in terms of information security management covering all related activities (digitisation, physical and electronic archiving). With this first step achieved, it remained to obtain the new status of PSDC, created by the law of 25th July 2015 on electronic archiving.
The Luxembourg law of the 25th of July 2015 specifies the requirements under which electronic copies may benefit from a presumption of conformity with the original & sets out the rules applicable to the activity of providers of digitisation and/or archiving services (PSDC).
Furthermore, the law defines the requirements for:
Luxembourg becomes one of the first countries to adopt such legislation and opens the way for the simplification of conservation and archival research.
Note that Labgroup is certified as:
At European level, the eIDAS (Electronic Identification and Trust Services) regulation 910/2014, which has been fully implemented since the 1st of July 2016, has clearly demonstrated the willingness of member states to democratise digitisation by:
While Luxembourg has been a precursor with this new law, other countries have also embarked on the path of digital transformation by introducing an attractive legal regime for electronic archiving. However, no other country engages the state through the certification of service providers, such as the PSDC status in Luxembourg.
By archiving in Luxembourg, companies in those countries could therefore both exploit their national legislation and benefit from the guarantees offered by the PSDC status.
Indeed, the rules and requirements to which Labgroup must comply as a PSDC are equivalent to those established by the Belgian law of July 21, 2016, called Digital Act, and the French decree of December 5, 2016 on the reliability of the copies and taken for the application of Article 1379 of the Civil Code.
The French and Belgian judges will, therefore, find, in the certified conformity of the PSDC in Luxembourg, objective reasons to rule favourably on the reliability of the digital copy.
Some of the PSDC obligations are:
It is therefore with confidence, with the guarantee of the state, that the holders of information can now choose between:
