Records appraisal and disposal Hide menu The creation of records during the normal business of an agency involves a substantial financial investment. Records can be divided into two categories, including those of continuing or archival value which have characteristics that need to be kept forever, and those that have no continuing value which are considered to be temporary only and may be destroyed when they are no longer relevant.
