One day workshop on monitoring compliance with records management standards, policies and guidelines.
There has been a huge investment in records management policies, procedures and systems in recent years.Much of this investment has been in response to requirements to comply with a raft of existing and new legislation and to demonstrate good corporate governance.But records management is not simply about introducing new policies and systems, there is also a need to ensure that policies are being followed and systems are being used effectively.
Having built a business case for the initial investment, records managers need to be able to demonstrate that the anticipated benefits have been achieved and that new policies and systems are being used to ensure compliance with external and internal requirements.
Only by monitoring records management compliance is it possible to identify any shortcomings and implement the appropriate remedial action.
