Exemption from Transfer

Consignment transfer paperwork is processed in the order in which it is received and all paperwork that meets requirements is processed as soon as possible. Depending upon the stage of the transfer process you are at, the complexity of the records you have, and the demand from other agencies for transfers and advice, it may take some time before you will be contacted to arrange a date for transfer.

If you have an urgent need to move boxes from your work place to offsite storage, you can seek an interim exemption to store records at an Approved Service Provider (ASP) until you have received approval to transfer the records to the custody of State Records. If you wish to apply for an exemption, contact the Manager, Archive.
