PRO 61 Plan for Determining Retention of Records in APROSS is a template that has been designed to meet the following PROV requirement outlined in PROS 20/02 Storage Standard

For physical records already held in an APROSS as at 17/12/2020:

  • Public offices must develop a plan detailing the actions they will take to determine required retention periods for those holdings where this is not known. The plan must meet requirements specified by PROV, be approved by the head of the public office or their delegate and provided to PROV upon request.


Material in the Public Record Office Victoria archival collection contains words and descriptions that reflect attitudes and government policies at different times which may be insensitive and upsetting

Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Peoples should be aware the collection and website may contain images, voices and names of deceased persons.

PROV provides advice to researchers wishing to access, publish or re-use records about Aboriginal Peoples
