“In this month’s edition of the Technology & Digital round-up we feature two examples of changes to outdated laws – one confirmed and one proposed – to keep pace with technology. The Electronic Trade Documents Act, which introduces digital trade documents, is set to radically reduce costs and waste and increase efficiencies and security, while proposed product safety reforms include accommodating the shift to online shopping and regulating innovations such as internet connected devices and AI.” – Luke Jackson
