Records management standard

Managing Records and Archives – Records Management Standard for the New Zealand Public Sector

The core standard we’ve developed is the Records Management Standard for the New Zealand Public Sector. It sets out minimum mandatory requirements for public offices and local authorities to manage their records.

Records Management Standard for the New Zealand Public Sector

Records Management Standard is mandatory under the Public Records Act

The Records Management Standard is mandatory under the Public Records Act. This means that when it came into force on 1 July 2014, all public offices (except schools), and all local authorities need to meet the principles and requirements it sets out.

Public offices and local authorities are encouraged to be familiar with the principles of the Records Management Standard.

Audit against the requirements in the Records Management Standard

Archives New Zealand audits all public offices, except schools, against the requirements in the standard to assess their level of records management capability. Local authorities will not be audited.

See the Public Records Act 2005 Audit Programme section of the Toolkit for further information.
