Standards review

The review of the Recordkeeping Standards Framework has now been completed.

You can find the revised Standards and Specifications on the Standards Framework webpage. Please note: the Victorian Electronic Record Strategy (VERS) originally issued a separate Standard with associated Specifications, however these have now been incorporated into the revised set of Standards. See VERS Standard for further information. Thank you to everyone who contributed to this work as a member of a Standards Advisory Group or through providing feedback on the published drafts. We will now introduce a program to regularly review the Standards and Specifications to ensure they remain current.  


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

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.

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