The Children's Panel - life changing

Retention and Disposal Schedule Published 23 May 2018

This Retention and Disposal Schedule has been produced by CHS to set out the recommended retention periods for all records created by staff, Board members, Area Support Team (AST) and panel members, and Clerks to the ASTs in relation to the Children’s Hearings System.

The Schedule all records, regardless of their format. Some of the retention periods are laid down by statute (which is identified in the Rationale column); whilst others are guidelines following best practice or in line with business need. Every effort has been made to ensure that the retention periods are compliant with the legislative framework within which CHS operates.
