The process of transporting the records from the department to The National Archives is also known as ‘uplift’. It involves arranging with The National Archives the delivery of the records and planning their movement.
If you transfer records to a place of deposit the same arrangements should apply. The public record creating body is responsible for transporting records to the place of deposit and should consult with staff at the place of deposit on planning delivery.
Please see additional guidance for the delivery of digital records.
