Public Records (Scotland) Act 2011

SCA actively works to support the implementation of the Public Records (Scotland) Act 2011. The Act raises the profile of records management across the public sector in Scotland and will introduce improvements and efficiencies in public record keeping. As well as increasing business efficiency, good records management helps authorities meet their statutory obligations and thereby respond better to their users needs. It will help authorities to better monitor public services, maintain accurate records of the circumstances and experiences of individuals, and safeguard the records of vulnerable people.

The implementation of the Act is co-ordinated by the National Records of Scotland and you can find out more by visiting their website at:

We have been working with other strategic bodies to deliver a series of conferences. These events have been organised in partnership with the Scottish Council on Archives, National Records of Scotland, Information & Records Management Society and the Archives & Records Association (UK & Ireland).
