An electronic record is any information that is created or maintained in an electronic format.
Records retention schedules apply to records regardless of their physical format. Records created or maintained in electronic format must be retained in accordance with the minimum retention requirements presented in the General Records Schedules. Printouts of standard correspondence in text or word processing files are acceptable in the place of the electronic files. Printouts of electronic communications (email, instant messaging, text messaging, multimedia messaging, chat messaging, social networking messages, etc.) are acceptable in place of the electronic files, provided that the printed version contains all date/time stamps and routing information.
Electronic records include numeric, graphic, audio, video and textual information which is recorded or transmitted in an analog or digital format such as electronic spreadsheets, word processing files, databases, email, instant messages, scanned images, digital photographs and multimedia files. Electronic records that meet the definition of a public record must be managed and made available according to applicable laws and rules.
