Audio-visual records

The Public Records Act (NI) 1923 is intended to preserve important information in whatever forms it is stored.

Given the nature of these items, special storage arrangements might be required.

Arrangements for storage, review and/or permanent preservation should be made with the Records Management Officer at the earliest possible opportunity, preferably before creation.
