What about digital records?
The recordkeeping requirements are always the same, irrespective of the format of the record. However, with digital records there is an increased risk associated with unauthorised access to information on a large scale.
If you are using a system of record, the system will manage record disposal for you, there is no need for further action on your part.
If not, you’ll need to follow the record appraisal process to receive the proper authorisation to destroy record.
