  21. 22. <ul><li>LAE </li></ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><li>authenticity = digital signatures </li></ul></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><li>invented RM terminology (‘digital card’ = metadata set) </li></ul></ul></ul></ul><ul><li>Mistranslation of ISO 15489 </li></ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><li>records = recordings </li></ul></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><li>document management = records management </li></ul></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><li>records center = archival institution </li></ul></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><li>capture = collect </li></ul></ul></ul></ul>3. Half step forward
  22. 23. <ul><li>Until recently, the National Archives were not particularly interested in the e-records issue. </li></ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><li>No digital record has been transferred so far to the National Archives. </li></ul></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><li>  </li></ul></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Only a limited number of cases when records have been created in only in a digital environment, and even less selected for permanent preservation. </li></ul></ul></ul></ul>3.

Half step forward
  24. 25. <ul><li>… would be MoReq2 adopted? </li></ul>Under these circumstances… Is there a need to make room for the provisions of MoReq2?
  25. 26. <ul><li>Modernisation of the country </li></ul><ul><li>Implementation of EU legislation </li></ul><ul><li>A more deep implementation of e-government, requiring the management and archival of electronic records </li></ul>4. Adoption of MoReq2 Drivers for change

  28. 29. a. Implementing change <ul><li>Apply for e-records the same lifecycle model as for managing paper records </li></ul><ul><li>Recognition of electronic records management as a distinct domain of archival science, which uses IT but is not managed by IT </li></ul>

This has implications on the translation of MoReq2 </li></ul><ul><li>Development of records management as an academic discipline </li></ul><ul><li>Implementation of a training regime in electronic records management </li></ul>
  30. 31. b.

  32. 33. Adoption of Moreq2 can be done?
