Our history

Following the law of March 2000 on digital documents, Caisse des Dépôts founded CDC Arkhinéo in order to invest in electronic archiving with probative value.

At the time everyone was convinced that digital would oust paper within a few years. It took a while though to reach 1.5 billion digital archives. The archives are varied such as pay slips, invoices, contracts for the sale of services/products, employment contracts, details of savings products, recordings of telephone conversations, accounting records, consumer credit contracts, documents subject to legal review, procurement contracts, etc.
