PROS 11/01 G6 Record Storage: Authorisation and Inspection Programme Guideline provides information about the authorisation processes for:

  • Agency
  • Approved Public Record Office Storage Supplier (APROSS)
  • State archive storage and inspection programme for APROSS facilities

This guideline aims to assist organisations with meeting the principles set under PROS 11/01 Storage Standard.

Please note that there is a new version of the Storage Standard and APROSS Specification which are both available via the Standards Framework page. The new Storage Standard (PROS 20/02) replaces both PROS 11/01 Storage Standard and PROS 11/01 S1 Agency Records Storage Specification.

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
