Standards Australia has announced that a new handbook for document control is now available. Called SA/SNZ HB 168:2017, Document Control, the handbook addresses the entire life cycle of business critical documents and provides guidelines for processes and systems for implementing an effective document control program.
The handbook has been prepared by the joint Australian and New Zealand committee IT021, Records and Document Management Systems.
Chair of the subcommittee IT-021-14, Document Control, Ms Casey Mowett commented on the development of the document:
“In today’s fast-paced, technology-enabled world, there are countless opportunities for process digitisation and automation. The development of this handbook has been done with this type of rapid digitisation in mind,” explained Ms Mowett. “As a result, this handbook equips businesses and organizations with technical guidelines on how to best control business critical documents.”www.standards.org.au
