PROS 10/13 G3 Destruction Guideline provides practical assistance for agencies in the destruction of records when allowed in Retention & Disposal Authorities (RDAs), Single Instance Disposal Authorities (SIDAs) and Normal Administrative Practice (NAP). The guideline addresses the destruction of electronic and physical (for example, paper, film, or microfilm) records.

This guideline can be used by both agency staff disposing of records themselves as well as contractors destroying records on behalf of an agency.

Please Note: This guideline is now expired, but may provide some assistance for you. 

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
