If records are no longer required to be retained, a request should be made for records destruction.
For any records currently stored at the Access (formerly Retrievex) offsite storage facility, a request for destruction should be submitted via the Access on-line system. Access will acknowledge the request and send the Records Coordinator a form for a signature to authorize records destruction. Once the signature is received by Access, the requested documents will be shredded and Access will issue the Records Coordinator a Certificate of Destruction. Access will never destroy any documents without signed authorization to do so.
For records stored in a location on the Bentley campus, a request may be made to Access to pick-up the documents for destruction. Signed authorization is required, and a Certificate of Destruction will be issued.
