Records related to trade union governance and corruption

On 2 December 2016 the National Archives withdrew the records retention notice issued on 24 March 2014 relating to records that might assist the Royal Commission into Trade Union Governance and Corruption.

Noting the conclusion of the Royal Commission and the submission of the final report to Parliament the Archives has determined the need for agencies to retain such records is no longer required.

Effective immediately, these records may be authorised for destruction under general and agency-specific records authorities issued by the Archives or using a normal administrative practice.
