The Council of Europe guidelines on electronic evidence in civil and administrative proceedings were adopted by the Committee of Ministers of the Council of Europe on 30 January 2019. The draft guidelines were developed by the European Committee on Legal Co-operation (CDCJ) of the Council of Europe. The purpose of the guidelines is to provide practical guidance for the handling of electronic evidence in civil and administrative proceedings to courts and other competent authorities with adjudicative functions; professionals, including legal practitioners; and parties to proceedings. The guidelines concern, inter alia, oral evidence taken by a remote link, the use, collection, storage and archiving of electronic evidence.
