Archival document storage and retrieval is a vast global business experiencing rapid digitalisation. Many corporations and their vendors have ceased storing paper and instead they scan and digitise every document. Some, like engineering designs, accounting records and legal contracts, are already digitised. We can provide the certification that will enable relying parties to verify the authenticity of such documents, and confirm that they have not been superseded by newer editions.
In 2022, Singapore’s Accounting & Regulatory Authority (ACRA) will be introducing a service known as TrustBar. Using technology similar to NextCert, this service allows users to verify authenticity and check the currency of ACRA’s documents such as Business Profiles and Business Certificates. Trustbar places a QR code on each document which is linked to a verifiable attestation. In this manner, a relying party can verify the authenticity of documents purported to be issued by ACRA.
