Records retention schedules

Retention schedules outline how long we keep certain types of records.


They decide how long we keep information for and help us make sure we're transparent in the management of our information, particularly the disposal of information.

Retention schedules are reviewed at least every two years to make sure they're kept up-to-date with the latest changes in legislation and best practice.

The length of time that we keep records for is based on a number of factors including legislation, best practice, common business practice and operational requirements.
