The European Commission’s eArchiving Initiative aims to foster interoperable archiving and data management in Europe by defining standards, best practices, and building a community of users and stakeholders.

Together with the E-ARK Consortium representing the E-ARK Foundation, the European Commission provides core specifications, software, training and knowledge to help organisations and people to preserve information for the long term.

The eArchiving Conformance Seal is intended for digital or electronic archives, and associated solution and service providers, as a sign of quality of digital archiving; long term preservation; and data management; following standards and best practices.
