English term or phrase:functional equivalent approach
Data messages should not be denied admissibility as evidence in legal proceedings on the sole ground that they are in electronic form. This principle may be achieved by applying the notion of the "functional equivalent approach" which is based on an analysis of the purposes and functions of the traditional paper-based requirements such as “writing”, “signature” and “original” with a view to determining how those purposes or functions could be fulfill ed through electronic commerce techniques.
