1st April 2016 - version 4.0

Summary of the main content changes between v3.0 and v4.0:

In v3.0 additional columns were added to each schedule to indicate where the master record should be held; where old records may be found, if not in the master location; whether a record is published and RAG statuses for records requiring extra thought or attention.  In v4.0, the information in these columns is now about 85% complete across the schedules.  The completion of these columns has resulted in a major overhaul of much of the retention schedule with too many amendments to be listed on this page.  It should be noted that the information given in these columns reflects the "as is" picture.  The "as should be" guidance will be developed over the next few iterations of the retention schedule.
