Magalie Baumgartner, Michael Fritz, Jens-Uwe Heuer-James, Viktoria Klemm, Claudia Klumpp, Jörg Michael, Roland Schmeling

Often it is legal uncertainties that prevent many responsible parties from switching to electronic provision of the usage information they have to deliver. With a team of more than 20 experts from all relevant industries, tekom has therefore drawn up a guideline that provides greater clarity on this issue. This guideline has now also been published in English.

With this guideline, tekom represents the current state of the art in the field of electronic documentation. The legal requirements regarding the form of provision are considered and a procedure for the legal safeguarding of a use case-based media use is presented.

Contents of the tekom guideline:

  • Reasons for reducing the use of paper
  • Legal requirements: Under what circumstances is paper legally required?
  • Framework conditions, advantages and disadvantages of paper or electronic delivery
  • Creation of a media concept based on use cases
  • Recommendations for action in practice, in particular with regard to the necessary safeguarding of electronic provision in critical areas
  • References (laws, regulations, standards)
