Retention schedules – Finding your way through the maze

The development and use of records retention schedules is fundamental to good records management practice. However, it is a topic that is often misunderstood and one that frequently poses a challenge to records managers and archivists. The records manager has an important role in balancing the legal and regulatory requirements for the retention/destruction of records with the varying needs of the business, identifying a solution that is based upon a solid risk management strategy.

This week, I am co-presenting a workshop on the topic of retention scheduling with my colleague Russell Joyce (Heath Barrowcliff Consulting) at the Spring Conference of the Scientific Archivists Group. If you are quick, you might just be able to book yourself a place on what promises to be another interesting conference.
