Records Management

Information Governance provides advice and guidance on records management and promotes the efficient management of information in the University

On this page

Records Management is the systematic and consistent control of records to ensure information is handled in an efficient and legally compliant manner.

For guidance on how long to keep information start with the Guidance on Retention. The University uses the JISC Records Retention Management guidance and business classification scheme to inform decisions on the retention and disposal of University records and information but the Guidance is a good place to start.
