Records Management and Archiving is one of the top-level categories in the Professional Knowledge and Skills Base (PKSB). It involves recording, organising and preserving information records held in a range of formats in an organisation, and continuing to evaluate them for retention or disposal based on their format, relevance, usage and legal requirements.
