Records Disposal Freeze for Records Relating to the Royal Commission into Violence, Abuse, Neglect and Exploitation of People with Disability

The NT Archives Service and the Records Service have issued a records disposal freeze for records relevant to the scope of the Royal Commission into Violence, Abuse, Neglect and Exploitation of People with Disability (Disability Royal Commission).

The issue of this disposal freeze means that any records within the scope of the Disability 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 12 September 2019. 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 December 2022.

For further information regarding the freeze please see the attached Notice of Records Disposal Freeze for Records Relating to the Royal Commission into Violence, Abuse, Neglect and Exploitation of People with Disability PDF (295.1 KB).
