The Records Management Sub-Group consulted numerous resources, as outlined below, to assist in the development of the GC RMMS. Some documents, such as the MGI Policy and ISO standards and technical reports/specifications influenced heavily the work of the Records Management Sub-Group while others, such as the Australian, Minnesota and UK standards provided a point of reference for crafting the approach specific to the GC.
