Sector Disposal Authorities

The State Records Office (SRO) has implemented a suite of Sector Disposal Authorities (SDAs) across State Government. The SRO’s SDA program is designed to reduce the need for individual organizations to produce new agency-specific Retention and Disposal Schedules.

The following SDAs are currently available:

  • SDA for Cemetery Boards (PDF, 292 KB), covering all Cemetery Boards in Western Australia.  This revised SDA, approved by the State Records Commission on 24 October 2017, replaces SD 2012-026.  A Linking Table, included as Appendix A, provides cross referencing from the superseded SDA to this SDA.
