Hazardous Material Storage

Files and document storage

In each company there are files and documents, which must be kept locked away and secured. The need for storage results from the statutory periods for the retention of business documents which are listed, for example, in the German Commercial Code.

The duty to retain is part of the tax and commercial accounting obligation and the duty to keep records. Consequently, the person who is required under tax or commercial law to keep account ledgers and records, is also obliged to retain them.
In addition, it is advisable for documents of the personnel department or research and development documents to be kept secure and protected.
