What to keep

'What to keep' is an initiative from The National Archives to help government ensure that it knows what information to keep and for how long, and to put this into practice. The following pages give advice on how to decide what to keep and include links to all relevant guidance produced by The National Archives or other organisations.

See our list of relevant guidance for helpful links, documents and further information.
