Methods of Destruction

Under section 18(1) of the Public Records Act 2005 (PRA) a public record or local authority protected document cannot be destroyed without the authorisation of the Chief Archivist. When public offices and local authorities destroy records they must ensure that they meet all of their responsibilities.
