Digital Record Keeping

The Federal Agency Digital Guidelines Initiative (FADGI) is a government effort created to aid in the development of clear and coherent guidelines for digital record keeping2. These guidelines help to ensure uniform quality and establish best practices and image quality standards for record digitization within the National Archives and Records Administration (NARA).

According to federal mandate M-23-07, all permanent records sent to NARA after June 30, 2024 will be required to be submitted in an electronic format.


The Canon FADGI Compliance Installation Package


To adhere to the new FADGI compliance standard, the Canon FADGI Compliance Installation Package helps government agencies meet the FADGI recommendations that should be followed when it comes to scanning, processing, and creating digital replicas of permanent hard-copy documents and records.

The Installation package includes:

  • On-site installation of custom firmware designed to generate images that conform to the quality and performance guidelines defined for the FADGI Modern Textual Records category3
  • Streamlined verification process to confirm the scanner is now ready to start generating FADGI compliant images
