Our new Information management pages are now available in beta. Take a look and let us know what you think.



These pages provide guidance on the selection and transfer of records. Bodies transferring records to The National Archives or to places of deposit under the Public Records Act 1958 should follow this process.

This process applies to records in all formats and media, including paper and digital records.

You can check whether your organisation needs to transfer records either to The National Archives or to a place of deposit by reading Public records bodies: Determination and change of status (PDF, 0.22Mb), our guidance on how to identify a public records body. Alternatively contact us for more information.
