Element 5: Retention schedule

The Council's records retention scheme.

Schedule image

East Renfrewshire Council's records retention schedule gives timescales for how long the Council retains its information.

The retention schedule aims to deliver statutory compliance and business efficiency by ensuring that information is retained only for as long as it is required.

The retention schedule was based on the Scottish Council on Archives Records Retention Schedule and reviewed and approved by the Records Management Working Group but the schedule continues to develop: feedback is very welcome!

This page holds both the schedule itself and also a guide to how to use it.
