Dear Carlos,

well at first, to my knowledge there are no RFCs about the migration of
paper documents to electronic ones.
Equally I am not aware of any ISO standards about this specific topic.

But there are actually a number of national documentations and
guidelines about process policies to migrate from paper to electronic
documents. Usually these include process documentation and
organizational controls to ensure correct transfer. Personally I find
some of these guidelines overshoot a bit on the volume relative to the
needed process. In many cases it is covered by national laws which in
some cases refer to industry guidelines. (There might also be European
guidelines influencing some of the national guidelines.) 
A most common scenario to look at is for example for processes to scan
invoices and store them as electronic documents.

Depending on your specific need/use case I would recommend to look at
the existing guidelines in your country/jurisdiction.
(And if you want to write guidelines for your country, you can drop me
an email and I might be able to help dig out some published process
guidelines from other countries.)

Kind regards, Tobias
