Records management is about making sure that we manage our records to meet the operational, legislative, regulatory and accountability requirements.

Good records management will:

  • Ensure that we can find the information we need at the time we need it
  • Support decision-making
  • Provide evidence of our work
  • Ensure that we are complying with legal requirements to keep records and destroy them systematically when appropriate
  • Enable us to provide information readily in compliance with access to information legislation requests, such as the:
    • Data Protection Act (DPA) 2018
    • Freedom of Information Act (FOI) 2000
    • Environmental Information Regulations (EIR) 2004
    • Re-Use of Public Sector Information (RPSI) 2015
