PROS 20/02 S3 Class B Place of Deposit Requirements Specification sets out the requirements which must be met to obtain and retain appointment as a Class B Place of Deposit. It also includes guidance on how to meet these requirements.

Class B Places of Deposit are appointed by the responsible Minister under Section 14 of the Public Records Act 1973 to hold temporary value public records which are no longer required by Victorian government offices.

This allows communities to retain records about their own history, which may otherwise be lost or destroyed.

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
