OAR 438-007-0040
Electronic Documents


If any party, in the regular course of the party’s business or activity, has kept or recorded any memorandum, writing, entry, print, reproduction or a combination thereof, of any act, transaction, occurrence or event, and in the regular course of the party’s business or activity has caused any or all of the same to be recorded, copied or reproduced by any photographic, photostatic, microfilm, micro-card, miniature photographic, optical imaging or other process that accurately reproduces or forms a durable medium for so reproducing the original, the original may be destroyed in the regular course of business. Such reproduction, when satisfactorily identified, is as admissible in evidence as the original itself whether the original is in existence or not at the time a party introduces into evidence such reproduction. The introduction of a reproduced record, enlargement or facsimile does not preclude admission of the original.


If a party introduces into evidence a reproduction described in subsection (1), the exhibit index described in OAR 438-007-0018 (Exchange and Admission of Exhibits at Hearing) will include the following certification: "The attached exhibits contain reproductions as described in 438-007-0040 (Electronic Documents). I hereby certify that the reproductions were created in the regular course of a party’s business or activity."
