Records Disposal Freeze for Records Relating to the Royal Commission into National Natural Disaster Arrangements

The Archives Service and the Records Service have issued a records disposal freeze for records relevant to the scope of the Royal Commission into National Natural Disaster Arrangements (Bushfire Royal Commission).

The issue of this disposal freeze means that any records within the scope of the Bushfire Royal Commission must not be destroyed even if the records are due for destruction under the terms of a current and authorised records disposal schedule.

The notification provides an outline of the types of records that may be relevant and identifies some of the disposal schedules that are likely to contain relevant classes of records.

The disposal freeze is effective from 30 March 2020. A review of the requirement for the continuation of the disposal freeze will be undertaken by the archives service and records service prior to 31 August 2020.

For further information regarding the freeze please see the attached Notice of Records Disposal Freeze for Records Relating to the Royal Commission into National Natural Disaster Arrangements PDF (292.9 KB).
