  • procedures and processes supporting legal admissibility and/or integrity and security;
  • management of related audit trail information.

Excluded:

  • records management policies and procedures within the scope of TC 46;
  • all work on information, process and production definitions and workflow of industrial automation systems within the scope of TC 184;
  • cinematography, dimensions and labeling of raw-stock film, and the methods within the scope of ISO/TC 42 dealing with testing, rating, classifying and specifying the performance characteristics of processes, materials and devices applicable to photography;
  • work being done by ISO/IEC JTC1 that is within its scope and in particular work of ISO/IEC JTC 1/SC 23, SC 24, SC 27, SC 28, SC 29, SC 32 and SC 34.
