The National Archives of Australia (NAA) is pleased to advise that the exposure draft of their new policy Building Trust in the Public Record: managing information and data for government and community is now available for comment until 10th August 2020.

The NAA have also released an initial list of supporting advice that exists, or will be developed or updated, to support the policy.

The new policy will take effect from 1 January 2021 and will follow the current Digital Continuity 2020 policy (DC2020) which concludes at the end of this year. The policy seeks to improve information management capability within the Australian Government to meet current and future needs for authentic and reliable information and data by government and community.

The NAA welcomes feedback from the Digital Preservation Coalition community on the exposure draft and supporting products, including insights from your digital preservation expertise. A soft launch of the policy is planned at the upcoming RIMPA Live Convention in October 2020.
