Storage Standard Review

The Storage Standard and Specifications are currently being reviewed.

As a first step, we are seeking views on the proposed scope for the Standard and on the possibility of placing limits on storing permanent physical records and records with unknown minimum retention periods with APROSS. Note: APROSS organisations are also being consulted.

For further information and to provide your input please use this Consultation Paper.

After you have responded to the questions in the consultation paper, save the document and email it as an attachment to by Friday 7 February 2020.

If you have any questions or would like to make a general comment, this can also be directed to Alison McNulty.
