The Building trust in the public record: managing information and data for government and community policy came into effect on 1 January 2021.
The policy identifies key requirements for managing Australian Government information assets (records, information and data).
It helps Australian Government agencies improve how they create, collect, manage and are able to use information assets.
The Australian Government relies on well managed information to better support, protect and serve the community. The policy complements and supports Australian Government agendas to:
- digitally transform Australian Government services
- protect Australian Government information assets
- maximise the use and re-use of Australian Government information assets.
The National Archives is progressively developing and releasing supporting products and advice to help agencies implement the policy. These are being released in accordance with the publicly available release schedule, for the 2022–23 financial year. We have included a comprehensive list of existing, updated and new products and advice.
