ERPANET is pleased to announce its workshop on the role of audit and certification in digital preservation. This three-day workshop, co-hosted by the Stadsarchief Antwerpen, will be held in Antwerpen (Belgium) on April 14-16, 2004.

The workshop will explore the purposes of audit and certification and examine their use within digital preservation. Issues will include: the implementation of audit frameworks and standards; corporate roles and responsibilities; and, experiences of audit (financial management, government, and information systems). Practical examples from various environments will be offered to stimulate discussion of the issues involved.


The target audience for this workshop is wide. Some anticipated participants are: managers with the remit to monitor the successful implementation of policies in their organisations; auditors themselves wishing to learn about standards and frameworks for conducting an audit with regard to digital preservation; and, staff involved in the implementation of a digital preservation programme wishing to explore methods of ensuring authenticity and reliability. 

Participants will learn about the value of an auditing framework in the management of digital information, and will be equipped to implement measures in their own organisations.
