Information technology — Electronic discovery — Part 3: Code of practice for electronic discovery (Adopted ISO/IEC 27050-3:2020, second edition, 2020-01)
Standards development within the Information Technology sector is harmonized with international standards development. Through the CSA Technical Committee on Information Technology (TCIT), Canadians serve as the SCC Mirror Committee (SMC) on ISO/IEC Joint Technical Committee 1 on Information Technology (ISO/IEC JTC1) for the Standards Council of Canada (SCC), the ISO member body for Canada and sponsor of the Canadian National Committee of the IEC. Also, as a member of the International Telecommunication Union (ITU), Canada participates in the International Telegraph and Telephone Consultative Committee (ITU-T).
For brevity, this Standard will be referred to as CSA ISO/IEC 27050-3 throughout.
This Standard supersedes CAN/CSA-ISO/IEC 27050-3:18 (adopted ISO/IEC 27050-3:2017). At the time of publication, ISO/IEC 27050-3:2020 is available from ISO and IEC in English only. CSA Group will publish the French version when it becomes available from ISO and IEC.
This Standard has been formally approved, without modification, by the Technical Committee and has been developed in compliance with Standards Council of Canada requirements for National Standards of Canada. It has been published as a National Standard of Canada by CSA Group.
This document provides requirements and recommendations on activities in electronic discovery, including, but not limited to, identification, preservation, collection, processing, review, analysis and production of electronically stored information (ESI). In addition, this document specifies relevant measures that span the lifecycle of the ESI from its initial creation through to final disposition.
This document is relevant to both non-technical and technical personnel involved in some or all of the electronic discovery activities. It is important to note that the user is expected to be aware of any applicable jurisdictional requirements.
