Records management is not just about how you store physical and digital records. It encompasses all record keeping activities and takes account of the value of the records kept.
Here are some benefits of using the ISO 15489 framework:
- Record classification – Following the standard’s logical record classification system will help you simplify the tasks of recording, retaining, retrieving and deleting records.
- Legal Compliance – Implementing the standard will normally mean your business also complies with all its legal responsibilities towards record keeping.
- Brand Reputation – Implementing the ISO 15489 standard demonstrates your commitment to excellent record management, which can increase existing customer confidence and help you win new business in international markets.
- Greater efficiency – The ISO 15489 standard provides employees with comprehensive guidance on routine, yet critical, record management processes so helping reduce errors.
