Secondary Storage Certification
Each agency as defined under the Archives Act 1983 (Tas) needs to ensure the safety and proper preservation of the State records that it creates. If your agency decides to use the services of a commercial storage provider, ensure that they are an Approved Secondary Storage Provider (ASSP).
The Physical Storage Technical Standard sets out minimum requirements for the storage of state records.
Secondary Storage providers are inspected and certified as an ASSP.
A list of Secondary Storage Providers that have been certified under the Standard is available here.
If you are a storage provider and have any questions, please contact us.
