The final cycle in the life cycle of a document whether paper based or electronic is the most crucial but more often the one that is overlooked!
Confidential destruction of ‘information’ is a key factor for all businesses in the EU whether you are a sole trader or an employer of 1,000’s. Every Director has a legal obligation under the Data Protection Act to ensure that confidential information is comprehensively destroyed at the end of its legal lifecycle.
The confidential destruction facility is part of the same operation that manufacturers new high strength archive boxes that The Depository utilise, therefore minimising the impact on the environment for the production of new supplies.
All destruction processes are fully compliant to ISO:14001 and BS:8470:2006 standards. The destruction plant is licensed to the Data Protection Registrar and the Environment Agency and is a registered waste carrier.
Destruction processes are subject to the same transparent audit structures as all other Depository services – destruction can be witnessed in person or viewed via the web based CCTV system and the destruction confirmed using the online data tracking.
