Document Retention, Destruction and your Client’s Legal Obligations


Your client must abide by various and sometimes competing legislative regimes which govern:

  • How and when certain documents may be destroyed;
  • Provide that some must be retained for longer (if not indefinitely);
  • Others are to be de-identified if they are retained; and
  • The transition from hard copy to e-copy documents.

Reconciling and / or applying these sometimes confusing laws can be a challenge and non-compliance can have serious consequences for your client.

This session will cover:

  • Relevant legislation including Crimes Act, Evidence Act, Electronic Transactions Act, Privacy Act, Corporations Act and ITA Act; and
  • Electronic documents and document retention policies
