| || Related Guidance Policy \\ | Authenticity |
| || Definition/ Description | Reliability is “_The trustworthiness of a record as a statement of fact. It exists when a record can stand for the fact it is about, and is established by examining the completeness of the records form, and the amount of control exercised on the process of its creation_ “  (Source: [Alliance for Permanent Access|http://www.alliancepermanentaccess.org/index.php/knowledge-base/dpglossary/#Reliability]) Often related to the archival community. \\ |

“_The record must be a full and accurate representation of the business activity to which it attests. This requires the establishment of trust in the record keeping and archival processes used to manage the record throughout its lifecycle, and the continued ability to place the record within its operational context_ “ \\
