Weekly CoR implementation tip

Does your organisation have a Document and Record Control Policy?

The purpose of a Document and Record Control Policy is to establish the framework under which workplace documents and records are created and managed.

Use the checklist below as a guide to develop or validate your Document and Record Control Policy

Does your Document and Record Control Policy include:

  • a commitment to current, consistent documents and records
  • a summary of the document and record control framework
  • a summary of key roles and responsibilities involved in the framework

The Document and Record Control Policy supports CoR as it supports the requirements to create and maintain CoR documentation and records.
