Records Management Unit

TAHO Advices #2 & #69 released

The Tasmanian Archive & Heritage Office has released new advices on appraising records and Registers of Records Destroyed. All staff involved in the disposal of records are encouraged to familiarise themselves with the new Advices.

The Tasmanian Archive & Heritage Office (TAHO) is the State Government agency responsible for overseeing records management at State government agencies and statutory authorities (which includes the University of Tasmania). They periodically issue State Records Guidelines, which are mandatory, and State Recordkeeping Advices, which are optional recommendations based on best practice. For a complete list of TAHO Guidelines and Advices, see the TAHO website.

The Tasmanian Archive and Heritage Office has released State Recordkeeping Advice 69: Register of Records Destroyed, which provides advice on how to create and maintain Registers of Records Destroyed. It has also released an updated version of Advice 2: All About Appraisal, which should be read in conjunction with its appendix and with the Appraisal Statement for State records required as State Archives.
