This PDF surveys national laws and regulations that specify retention requirements for commonly encountered records that are likely to be maintained in electronic form: corporate, accounting, tax, customs, legal, e-mail, employment, workplace health and safety, intellectual property, and surveillance. It also discusses retention requirements for dissolved and bankrupt companies, data protection, and transborder records storage. Much of this guidance is also applicable to paper records.
Intended for records managers, compliance officers, information governance specialists, attorneys, risk managers, and others who need to know how long records must be kept to satisfy legal and regulatory requirements, this publication costs a fraction of the expense you would incur to research and compile this information.
