A disposal notification is posted once a recommendation for disposal actions has been made to a regulated agency by the Chief Archivist. You can view the appraisal report and disposal schedule attached to these recommendations, and make comments.

Only comments about the disposal recommendation will be assessed as part of this process. Examples of the type of information that impacts these recommendations are:

  • is there new information that you can provide affecting the disposal recommendations?

  • can you provide a new interpretation of existing information relating to the recommendations?

  • can you produce evidence that the appraisal did not give enough weight to existing information relating to the recommendations?

Additional information about the disposal authority can be provided by quoting the Appraisal ID number. To request more information please contact us.

To be notified when new intentions to dispose are posted, email us with the word ‘subscribe’.
