Generic Retention and Disposal Schedule

AFFHO have developed a generic Retention and Disposal Schedule to assist our member organisation with the management of their societies’ records.

A Retention and Disposal Schedule provides direction on the minimum retention periods for records relating to common administrative functions and activities performed by organisations. The retention periods in the generic schedule are based on the ACT legislation as that is where AFFHO is incorporated.

As a note of caution, we ask that societies check the appropriate legislation for their state or territory prior to its use.
