Records Management Policy
The Records Management Policy has been updated with minor changes. It applies to all Council staff including contractors, Councillors, casual and temporary staff.
Council has a responsibility under the State Records Act 1998 (NSW) (‘State Records Act’) to establish and maintain a records management program in accordance with standards and codes of best practice approved by State Records NSW. The State Records Act and the mandatory Standard No. 12: Standard on Records Management are applicable to all records in both physical and electronic formats and require Council to document business transactions fully and accurately in compliant recordkeeping systems.
The HP Content Manager (TRIM) is the official recordkeeping system.
The key update to the policy is to incorporate changes to the relevant Standard AS ISO 15489.1:2017 Information and Documentation - Records Management, Part 1: Concepts and Principles.
