Standing endorsement of disposal authorisation

Glossary topic: 
Recordkeeping

The endorsement of the disposal of a certain set or group of records (e.g. 2008/09 timesheets).

The standing endorsement allows for records that have reached the end of their retention period and are covered by the endorsement to be destroyed without seeking further authorisation from the CEO or authorised delegate.

A standing endorsement is usually for a set period of time (e.g. disposal of records completed in 2016).
