Records Management MoReq2

MoReq® is a records management specification published by the DLM Forum that describes “modular requirements for records systems”. The latest edition of the MoReq® specification is MoReq2010®.

MoReq2010® aims to provide a comprehensive, but simple and easily understood set of requirements for a records system that is intended to be adaptable and applicable to divergent information and business activities, industry sectors and types of organization. It avoids a “one size fits all” approach to implementing a records management solution by establishing instead a definition of a common set of core services that are shared by many different types of records system, but which are also modular and flexible, allowing them to be incorporated into highly specialized and dedicated applications that might not previously have been acknowledged as records systems.
