Review of Standards
During 2014 we are undertaking a review of five of the Standards issued under the State Records Act. The purpose of the review is to ensure that standards are relevant and reflect best practice in the digital business environment. In 2014 we will review:
- Standard on managing a records management program
- Standard on full and accurate records
- Standard on counter disaster strategies for records and recordkeeping systems
- Standard on digital recordkeeping, and the
- Standard on appraisal and disposal of State records.
All NSW public sector organisations, professional associations, and individuals are welcome to provide feedback on the standards. We are keen to learn how you have used the standards, where you have had difficulties in implementing requirements, and your suggestions on how we could improve the standards.
The review process commenced in February 2014 with feedback on the Standard on managing a records management program and the Standard on full and accurate records. We then sought feedback in March 2014 on the Standard on counter disaster strategies for records and recordkeeping systems, the Standard on digital recordkeeping, and the Standard on the appraisal and disposal of State records.
We thank all organisations for contributing their comments and suggestions.
If you have any questions about the review process or the surveys, please contact Catherine Robinson, Senior Project Officer Government Recordkeeping on telephone 8257 2991 or email: firstname.lastname@example.org
