Operational Selection Policies
Operational Selection Policies (OSPs) are an integral part of The National Archives' records collection policy. They apply the collection themes described in the policy to the records of individual departments and agencies or to records relating to a cross-departmental theme. OSPs are normally subject to public consultation.
Operational selection policies are intended to be working tools for those involved in the selection of public records and individual OSPs may be reviewed and revised in the light of this.
