There is a statutory requirement to keep paperwork for a set period of time. Timescales vary depending on what the documentation is. Accountancy records usually need to be maintained for seven years but certain legal documents can sometimes be required to be stored for up to 25 years before they can be shredded. When the time comes for the destruction of data to be completed it is important that a certificate is issued and kept on file to prove that any files have been disposed with in a secure manner.
There is certain information that will be on every certificate that is issued by Simply Shredding. It will have your name, the name of your company for all Office Shred customers, and the date the certificate has been created. In addition it will show how many boxes or bags have been shredded and on what date. We will also detail the member of our team that has performed the destruction and the manager overall responsible for Simply Shredding who you will be able to contact over any queries or future work that you would like us to perform.
This is the limited access area where our Simply Shredding offices input the information needed to create the above certifcate on line and this will be emailed directly to you
If you do not have an email address we can arrange for a certificate to be posted to you or collected from your local Simply Shredding office.
