Summary/Abstract: According to objective literature, in each of the foregoing areas of law, the term “document” has a different precision in the content used to performa particular function, in order to obtain a certain probative and legislative power. Despite the extensive scope of the concept of civil and legal “document”, the legislature does not limit its semantic domain. The legal status created by the legislator allows for the adaptation of the term “document”,to the new terms used by the legislature in the definition of legal and regulatoryacts. The theoretical and broad interpretation of the term “document”in criminal law and civil law causes a significant increase in its mission and values. With the increase in meaning, there is also an increase in the function of the document. This is the result of continuous technical and technological development, which results in increasingly new forms of documents and their protection against counterfeiting, rewriting and unlawful use.
