Changing British Standards & other initiatives

The existing British Standard Institute, BIP 0008 code of practice for “legal admissibility and evidential weight of information stored electronically” is due to be redesigned in September 2008. The new standard, BS 10008 entitled “Evidential Weight and Legal Admissibility of Electronic Information” is currently on the BSI website for comment.

According to the draft, the model is based on ‘the Plan-Do-Check-Act model (PDCA) used in the majority of management system standards’.

In the ediscovery arena, there is the Electronic Discovery Reference Model (EDRM) which was setup due to the lack of standards and guidelines in the electronic discovery market. The EDRM is a generic practical process model.

Also, there is another ‘closed’ (non lawyers are not welcome) working group looking at protocols to supplement the CPRs.

What an interesting mix of views/perspectives?!
