The public consultation on the Keeper of the Records of Scotland's (the Keeper) Model Records Management Plan and Guidance Document ran from 27 Feb - 18 May 2012 and is now closed. Under the terms of the Public Records (Scotland) Act 2011 (PRSA), the Keeper was obliged to publish a model plan and accompanying guidance. The public consultation was a vital part of the process necessary for the creation of robust documents appropriate to the full implementation of PRSA in 2013.
The Keeper would like to thank all those individuals and institutions who responded to the consultation. His report on the issues raised by these responses, and the steps he intends to take in light of these responses.
