Records Disposal Freeze for Records relevant to the Royal Commission into Institutional Responses to Child Sexual Abuse

The NT Archives Service and the Records Service have issued a records disposal freeze targeting records relevant to the Royal Commission into Institutional Responses to Child Sexual Abuse.

The issue of this disposal freeze means that any records that document contact between children and a public sector organisation should 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.

For further information regarding the freeze please see the attached Notice of Records Disposal Freeze relating to the Royal Commission into Institutional Responses to Child Sexual Abuse PDF (113.5 KB).

This disposal freeze supersedes the notice of the proposed disposal freeze issued on 17 January 2013, Notice of Proposed Disposal Freeze relating to the Royal Commission into Institutional Responses to Child Sexual Abuse.
