Records Management is governed by a number of laws and regulations, several of which concern Data Protection and Freedom of Information.
Records management is the practice of maintaining records safely from the time they are created for Council business activities, during retention and up to their eventual disposal. This includes classifying, storing, securing, destruction and in some cases archival preservation of records. A record can be on paper, digital or a physical object.
Policies, procedures, guidance and retention and disposal schedules are available for Employees to use which will assist with the management of records.
