Next IRMS London Event: 6th July 2017, ISO 15489:2016 – a new beginning? at OFWAT

Posted By Administration, 10 June 2017

Please join the IRMS London group for an informative and interactive session led by Alan Shipman on "ISO 15489:2016 – a new beginning?" ISO 15489 was originally published in 2001, as a 2 part document. A lot has changed with Records Management since that time, so the ISO committee of experts decided to review and update the publication. This has resulted in the 2016 version of ISO 15489. The question is: is this really a new beginning for RM standardisation or is it just a revamp of the old document?

Alan has been involved in Document Management Standards for over 30 years, specialising in user aspects. He is Chairman of the BSI Document Management Applications committee, and is convenor of the International Standards Organisation (ISO) Document Management Quality sub-committee. Alan is currently Managing Director and Principal Consultant for Group 5 Training Limited. Group 5 Training provide consultancy services relating to the practical implementation of the Data Protection Act 1998, to the International Standard on Records Management (ISO 15489) and to the BS ISO 27000 series (Information Security Management).

The session is designed to facilitate discussion, focussing on existing and planned guidance on good records management practice. It will look at the concepts included in ISO 15489:2016 to see if they fit with general UK practice; will identify any issues that might arise and identify additional guidance needed. In particular, issues related to retention, disposal and archiving will be discussed – particularly important in the current GDPR implementation phase.

Our usual format for the evening will include networking, sandwiches, tea and coffee from 5.30pm-6.30pm followed by Alan's session at 6.30pm-8pm with time for questions. The meeting will be held at the OFWAT offices in meeting room 4 on 21 Bloomsbury Street, London. The closest tube stations are Tottenham Court Road, Goodge Street, and Holborn.

IRMS London looks forward to seeing you all on Thursday 6th July.
