Hi Alex,

having dealt with that very requirement quite often and from a different angle, i would agree and say "no". However, there is more than one law that is relevant here (at least in the German case). Thinks that i am immediately aware of (but that may or may not apply to specific companies) are (but certainy not limited to).


- KassenSichV

- ProduktHaftG

- KontraG

- Basel3

- Kritis


in U.S. additionally


The most important requirement ist the digitally immutable "original" at the time of creation. So this is something that would require (in Europe and according to the most contemporary law) and eIDAS conform signature. I heard people wispering that this will probably be part of Odoo v16 EE (but lets see).

But even if you have eIDAS there is much more requirements to be fulfilled than only this. Maybe we can have a small discussion on that in Liege next week. As i said i am very much intersted in the topic as well and its gonna be more and more important

Best Frederik

A customer of mine is asking if the storage of Documents is compliant 
with the various audit requirements (inalterability, etc). I don't think 
the standard (even in EE) can take care of this. But maybe I'm wrong.

I see requirements such as

technical procedures, such as electronic signatures, must be used to 
ensure the integrity of the recorded information. The time at which the 
information was recorded must be verifiable without any possibility of 
falsification (e.g. by time stamping). Information such as protocols, 
log files, etc. must also be retained.

Has anyone implemented something similar and would be willing to share
