Public Records (Scotland) Act

Records Management involves the maintenance, retention and disposal of records in compliance with good practice and relevant legislation (including Freedom of Information and Data Protection).


For Version 4 of the Fife Council corporate retention schedule contact Andrew Dowsey - details on this page.


Version 1.5 of the Corporate File Plan was issued in October 2010.


Records Management Co-ordinators, based in each Directorate, provide advice on how to manage records more effectively, including help with record surveys and retention scheduling to decide how long different types of files should be kept. They also provide advice on the effects of Data Protection and Freedom of Information legislation on the way Services store, use and dispose of records.  See Fife Council Records Management Policy linked to this page as a publication.
