3 Key Points On Electronic Notice


An electronic notice, electronic delivery is the preferred method of sending a document to another party. These notices may be used in any form that can reasonably be expected to reach the recipient with no loss of meaning from its original form and content. This article will go over three points on electronic notices.

What are some of its aspects?

The electronic notice is considered received by the addressee when it enters an information system designated or used by the recipient where it can be retrieved and processed. The electronic notice must be able to allow retrieval, processing, and storage for later use. If a digital signature was affixed to the electronic notice, then one would presume that this means all copies are equally authentic as long as they were transmitted from within the same domain name containing such certification. For example, .gov instead of .com. However, any subsequent transfer will not include authentication unless specifically requested.

Has it been standardized?

No particular technology has been standardized because electronic delivery can vary widely depending on industry standards (BNA). However, there should be some sort of sender authentication involved to ensure electronic delivery. If there is no authentication, one can assume that the electronic notice is not authentic/reliable.

So what are some common ways of electronic delivery?

Email or fax would be acceptable methods of electronic transmission for purposes of electronic notices. Generally speaking, an email will have a higher rate of successful messages, while fax has lower rates since emails tend to get caught in spam filters more often than emails, leading to failed deliveries (BNA).

To conclude, an electronic notice is a way to communicate electronic transmissions over electronic media, deemed the most efficient and effective means of electronic communication.
