Under the Public Records Act 1973, the Keeper of Public Records is responsible for the establishment of mandatory Standards for the efficient management of public records. The head of every Victorian public office is responsible for ensuring compliance with them.
The Standards apply to records held in all formats and organisational systems. Some of the Standards have Specifications which give technical requirements that public offices must comply with. Guidelines will be developed to assist with implementation.
Please note: There is a new Storage Standard and APROSS Specification. See the table at the bottom of this page for an outline of the new Standards and which Standards/Specifications they have replaced.
