Record retention schedules
26 October 2015
We have recently approved a new records retention schedule. This is based on our statutory and discretionary business functions, activities and processes and is designed to tell us how long we need to keep our records for and what should happen to them when they reach the end of their life.
The retention policies contained in the schedule apply to all records irrespective of location or format and we are working to apply this schedule to our records.
