What is a Certificate of Destruction?

Any company contracting a document destruction service should require that the organization issue them a signed testimonial, ddocumenting the method of destruction, date of destruction and reference number for the destruction certifying that proper destruction procedures were met. The "certificate of destruction", as it is commonly referred, is an important legal record of compliance with a retention schedule. It does not, however, effectively transfer the responsibility to maintain the confidentiality of the materials to the contractor. MicroShred will issue a Certificate of Destruction after the material has been destroyed.
