Advanced Declassification Course

Making your records ready for public access
(Advanced Declassification Course)

Declassification is an increasingly important component of Records Management for public agencies in Singapore. With the opening up of old records and the increasing numbers of public archives in Singapore, public agencies will increasingly have to make decisions on which documents to declassify. As part of the declassification process, public officers will also have to prepare and redact parts of documents that are deemed unsuitable for release.


Library & Archives Solutions Private Limited proudly presents this half-day training to equip you with the skills to prepare your documents for public access. Come join us to go through a step-by-step learning process!
