Post Loadsheet copy on ground

Hi, I have tried and searched throughout the web but found no answer to my question:

For airlines operating under FAR as airlines (not GA/commuter, sorry dont know the far number ;-) ) is there a regulation that says that you have to leave a loadsheet copy/original on the ground?
I work in Europe and we always have to do it, some airlines opted for EFB/ACARS solutions to send the L/S copy to their company.

Hi, thanks, in other words "ground" needs to keep these (and send them to the airline as soon as possible):
(1) Load manifest;
(2) Flight release;
(3) Airworthiness release;
(4) Pilot route certification; and
(5) Flight plan.

The 'Loadsheet' can mean different things to different airlines. I work for a commercial airline in the US, and to us a 'Loadsheet' is what other airlines call a 'Load Report'. If you are referring to a 'Trim Sheet' where the live and deadloads loads below and above the wing are converted in to flight data (such as ZFW, TOW, MAC, StabTO etc) then most large airlines will transmit that data direct to the cockpit via ACARS using Automatic Load Planning Software, once the flight closes and all bags / cargo / mail has been loaded and reported.
Back when I was a dispatcher in the UK, we either used a Load Control program to input the weights and print off the sheet for the flight crew, or resort to the old manual style load sheet.
Technology has moved on now so most Trim Sheets are sent direct to the flight crew. These are obviously stored digitally so having a copy 'On The Ground' is not usually required in the traditional sense.
