Policies, Guidelines and Forms
Queensland public records are at risk of being lost or damaged in disaster events. In circumstances such as natural disasters, authorisation for the disposal of damaged public records or notification of lost records may be required to ensure public authorities remain compliant with the Public Records Act 2002 (the Act). The loss of public records, including vital records, in a disaster significantly impact on a public authority, and result in a loss of corporate memory.
