  2.  When the law, local probate rule or practice requires the production of original cancelled checks or drafts as part of any interim or final settlements of any kind by personal representatives, conservators, or other persons, such information may be retained and reproduced in a form permitted under section 362.413; and, provided such information meets the requirements of section 362.413, no court may require the production of the original checks and drafts.
