Memorandum to Federal Agency Contacts: Instructions for Reviewing Agency Schedules that are Ten Years Old or Older 

NARA regulations require agencies to review records schedules that are ten years old or older every five years (see 36 CFR 1225.22a). We have developed instructions on how to use the Records Control Schedule (RCS) repository to help with this review. The instructions also include a job aid and a form for reporting inactive disposition items to NARA.

We encourage agencies to use these tools to conduct their review. If you report inactive disposition items to us we will update the RCS with this information.

If you have any questions, please contact LSSP_Team@nara.gov.
