Destruction dates can be assigned at the time of entry / retrieval of your documents. From December 2002 The Privacy Act nominates there are legal requirements to destroy personal information, an organisation, company or the like “… must take reasonable steps to protect the personal information it holds from misuse and loss…” and “…must take reasonable steps to destroy or permanently de-identify personal information if it is no longer needed…”
Archive Document Management helps minimise the risk posed by commercially sensitive information and provides a secure document destruction service for your entire stored documents once they reach their destruction dates.
We work with you to help you develop and set up retention schedules and record destruction dates for various kinds of records. Destruction dates are recorded into our database and once your paperwork / file / documents etc has reached the end of its life – cycle we let you know when these items are to be destroyed.
Once we receive written authorisation from you these expired files will be destroyed by our confidential and secure document destruction processes and document shredding and the waste available for re-cycling, we will then issue you with a proof of destruction in the form of a Destruction Certificate or similar appropriate document or records ‘proof of destroy”.
