Skip to content Cassie Findlay. What we need is to make more open minded approaches to the people we need to work with technologists in particular to build innovative solutions to recordkeeping problems, and to offer value to our employers and communities through our work of understanding changing recordkeeping needs. The revised Standard places a strong emphasis on appraisal as the most important tool to achieve appropriate and effective recordkeeping.
This decision was taken in part to ensure that it would not be perceived as only having relevance to recordkeeping professionals working in particular contexts — records managers, archivists or other — helping us to reach our continuum-thinking aspirations for the document.
Without embracing innovation and focusing on the special contributions that we make to accountable, efficient business, now and in the long term, we will simply slide into irrelevance. Thank you for this! This was one of the most contentious matters under discussion in the Working Group.
Often throughout the development process, we stopped to remind ourselves to think of records as data, whether structured to non-structured, along with their contextualising metadata, which also serves as a management tool over time.

By Thomas Wolf, http: This was, we felt, the most appropriate approach for work which we know is highly contingent, and also to ensure that opportunities for taking innovative approaches were not constrained.

Participatory cultures, trust technologies and decentralisation: To remember that such data and metadata might be presented io any number of forms, and in different types of groupings or aggregations. Principles [v] At the time of writing, the work in the ISO Committee TC46 SC11 on systems design and implementation is taking the form of a revision to the three ISO Information and documentation — Principles and functional requirements for records in electronic office environments Standards Share this: In other countries, our use of the term appraisal requires additional explanation and selling of the benefits of the kind of work we describe.
The Ieo does not specify an audience. However, for recordkeepers as a profession, it is crunch time.

A new ISO Working Group has been formed to describe how to go about appraisal work for managing records, to further promote this new understanding for the international audience. Also available as a preprint at: This kind of strategic, proactive approach is particularly valuable for 154892 work on the design of systems and services where there are recordkeeping needs, and oso dealing with the volume and complexity of digital records.

This was a sobering thought, given the exponential rate of technological innovation that we are currently experiencing. No doubt, the stakes were high.
Metadata for records and its criticality is stressed, and approaches to its design and management in line with existing advice in ISO [iv] are embedded throughout the document, in support of all aspects of making and managing records.
We intentionally avoided certain things in the revised Standard, in order to best achieve some of the goals we set for ourselves at the start.
ISO 15489. Records management standard updated
In my own career, ISO and its Australian parent, AShad provided the foundation for almost everything I did as a recordkeeping adviser, trainer and policy maker. In that time, a few attempts to do this revision had been mounted, only to collapse, perhaps under the weight of expectations. In this world, the analytical skills of understanding context and deciding how we want to create records in the first place, or how we make decisions about their management at critical points such as systems migrations, are vital.
It had been twelve years since the issue of the first edition. 51489-2

It describes the core work that supports the creation and management of records to meet compliance, business and societal requirements, and explains how to deal effectively and accountably with changes to these, over time.

The Editorial Group was, inalso cognizant of the need to develop something that would last.
