A one day course examining how to develop a robust policy on retaining documents.
Duration: Full day CPD: 6 hours
All businesses will be aware of the need to keep certain records for legal and commercial reasons – the problem, though, lies in knowing exactly which ones to keep, and for how long.
This one day course examines the importance for companies of having a robust document retention policy, and considers the risks inherent in the storage and destruction of information. Delegates will receive guidance on how to develop and maintain an effective document retention policy that balances business need with regulatory obligation; procedures for the disposal of materials; data law and the use of documents as evidence; and the retention of electronic data. The course will also examine the harsh consequences for companies should they fail to put in place a clear, structured policy.
Who is this course for?
Company secretaries and their teams, and any others involved in the collection and management of corporate documents
