Current Records Advices

Records Advices

Records Advices are provided to give a brief introduction to a range of records management topics, and our most recent advice is available here.

The Territory Records Office is progressively updating its advice products for agencies. If we have not recently updated our advice on the topic you are interested in, you may still find some of our older Records Advices useful.

Please Note:  These Records Advices have been developed to assist government agencies and their employees to better manage their recordkeeping.  All advice is for their use only and is provided here for the information of members of the public.  All enquiries by members of the public concerning the information provided or the resources mentioned in these advices should be directed to the Territory Records Office.
