An electronic document is

  • in the broader sense, any type of structured or unstructured information that is available as a file as a closed unit in an IT system .
  • a file which is protected against forgery and alteration by special methods , the evidential value of which in a legal transaction is equivalent to that of a written statement, legal remedy or document . This can be a scan , a text, a table of numbers, an image or any other file converted or created by digitization (conversion into a binary code ), which fulfills certain standardized conditions.
  • a physical travel document or proof of identity ( ID card ) that is additionally equipped with a storage medium that provides the data corresponding to the document in an unchangeable form in a wirelessly readable form ( RFID chip ).

The properties that the term is intended to represent are not firmly defined due to the various uses and ongoing technical development.

The lack of legal definition is criticized by lawyers with regard to the use of the term by the legislator (in Germany, for example, in Section 130a of the Code of Civil Procedure (ZPO)).
