Records Management Plan

Front cover of Records Management Plan

As part of the Public Records (Scotland) Act 2011, HES as a named authority is required to submit to the Keeper of the Records a records management plan (RMP) which must set out proper arrangements for the management of its records.

The plan must clearly describe the way HES cares for the records that it creates, in any format, whilst carrying out its business activities.  

Our Records Management Plan was approved in 2018 on an ‘improvement model basis’ which means that to be fully compliant with the Public Records (Scotland) Act 2011 we will over the next few years continue to develop and improve our existing records management practices and introduce new procedures in accordance with The Keepers recommendations.
