Recordkeeping Regime

Supported by government's new Information Management policy, the Recordkeeping Regime will be the subject of a specific Recordkeeping Directive (in development). It is essentially based on:

  1. The development of documentation standards for recordkeeping within institutions linked to program activities, business lines and assigned roles and activities.
  2. Several key strategies, including the management of records having ongoing business value at the point of their creation.
