Background

The final regulations that are the subject of this correction made new Federal records schedules media neutral unless otherwise specified and allowed schedules previously approved for hard copy records to be applied to electronic versions of the files if certain conditions are met. The regulation applies to all Federal agencies, including the National Archives and Records Administration (NARA).
