Safe Faxing Tips

  • Always ensure that the receiver has taken appropriate precautions to prevent anyone else from accessing the electronic or paper-based faxed documents.
  • Before sending a fax, check that the receiver’s number is correct.
  • Always complete a fax cover sheet that clearly identifies both the sender and the intended recipient. The cover sheet should include a standard confidentiality notice stating that this information contained in the fax is legally privileged, that the fax is intended for the named recipient only, and a request to contact you directly if the transmission was sent in error.
