Quarter 2 2018/19 release
The Information and records management standard establishes how to manage information and records systematically. It sets out the minimum level of compliance that organisations must meet.
The key legislation for information and records management for the New Zealand public sector is the Public Records Act 2005 (the Act).
Under the Contracts and Commercial Law Act 2017 (CCLA) and the Public Records Act 2005 (PRA), public offices and local authorities have conditions to meet before destroying the source information after converting to electronic form (referred to in this Guide as “digitisation”).
The Implementation guide is designed to help your organisation understand and apply the requirements of the standard.
The Information and records management standard, released in July 2016, is designed to assist organisations to meet their obligations under the Public Records Act 2005 (the Act). It establishes principles for efficient and systematic information and records management, and the minimum compliance requirements.
