Production of electronic documents

The announcement at the ICC website on ‘Task Force on Production of Electronic Documents in Arbitration’ appears to me to be the start of more Task Forces to come.

I do not know why the ICC specifically use the term ‘Production’. Why not just a Task Force for electronic disclosure or electronic documents?

I fear that by having a Task Force for ‘Production of electronic documents’ and with a mandate specifying two streams (i.e. disclosure and production) signal the potential to focus on disclosure and production with the outcome to report on ‘production of electronic documents’.

The ICC has great world class reports and publications and also a great institution in many ways.

I do hope this new Task Force will break convention and not just focus on the production aspects of e-disclosure.
