  • 30/01/2015: Latest draft revision of ISO 15489 now available for review

The latest draft revision of ISO 15489 Part 1 is now available for review until the 23rd March on the BSI website here:

If you have not commented on drafts posted on the BSI site before you will need to register first here:

ISO 15489 is the international best practice standard for records management, so it is important we get the revision right and that it reflects the needs of our professions.  Anyone can make comments.  I would encourage you to read this draft standard and contribute, this is your chance to be heard.  Please alert any records management or archival colleagues who may be interested and encourage them to comment.

For a reminder of the work on the revision to date, you can read my two articles in ARC magazine (291-November 2013 and 295-March 2014).

The BSI Records Management Committee will collate all comments and submit them to the ISO working group.
