Definition of Record
Hi all, am new-ish at this, and currently involved in revamping my company's Records Management Policy and Procedure. Have seen various definitions of "a record" available through search engines. Does anyone have a favourite definition of a record, or one that works well in your organisation? Thanks, John.

Hi John, good look with the revamp. I would say that a record is all information that is created in an organisation and not to go making a distincition between what is a record/non-record as this does confuse some people and they will not be clear on what is an "official" record and what is not!
