PROS 10/13 G2 Implementing a Disposal Programme Guideline covers the steps required to plan, implement and review a disposal programme. It provides useful and practical guidance on the implementation of a disposal programme which adheres to best practice recordkeeping principles identified in PROS 10/13 Disposal Standard.

Although this guideline is focussed on an ongoing programme of work, it can also be used to guide a project based initiative.

Please note:

This guideline is currently under review.

See our How long should records be kept? page for guidance about the disposal of records.

Also, this guideline does not provide information on specific planning templates that agencies may be required to follow. Agencies should determine whether or not they are required to follow specific planning methodologies.

It also does not include guidance on selecting or implementing recordkeeping systems or consultancy services.
