Records Toolkit

Archives New Zealand’s guidance on information and records management


Governance frameworks are critical to the achievement of effective information and records management to ensure support for all business functions and operations. This framework will help an organisation to:

- develop strategies and policies to direct how information and records will be managed

- assign responsibilities and allocate resources

- establish provision for information and records management in outsourcing and service delivery arrangements

- monitor information and records management activities, systems and processes.

Your organisation must set high-level policy and strategy for managing its information and records. The administrative head of the organisation must adopt it.


Best practice guidance for governance is listed in the link on the right. 

All guidance is accessed through the Resources and Guides link under Useful Information. 

See the Implementation Guide  for guidance mapped to the principles of the standard.
