Key Principles

  • Archive management should be endorsed and supported by the company’s senior management
  • The archive should be actively managed by a nominated individual
  • The archive should be located in a secure and appropriate environment to safe-guard it, and maintain its physical condition
  • The company should consider (limited) access to the archive for research purposes
  • The company should commit to consider public sector provision for the archive in the event of business failure (or acquisition that leads to archive disposal)
