NARA RIN: 3095-AB74 Publication ID: Fall 2016 
Title: Federal Records Management (Phase I) 

The National Archives and Records Administration proposes to revise the Federal records management regulations found at 36 CFR chapter XII, subchapter B. The proposed changes include updated office and contact information as well as changes resulting from the 2011 Presidential Memorandum on Managing Government Records, the 2012 Managing Government Records Directive (M-12-18), including use of the Electronic Records Archives (ERA), and Public Law 113-87, The Presidential and Federal Records Acts Amendments of 2014. The proposed rules will affect Federal agencies' records management programs relating to proper records creation and maintenance, adequate documentation, electronic recordkeeping requirements, use of the Electronic Records Archive (ERA) for records transfer, and records disposition. ERA is NARA's system that Federal agencies use to draft new records retention schedules for records, officially submit those schedules for approval by NARA, request the transfer of records to NARA for accessioning or pre-accessioning, and submit electronic records for storage in the ERA electronic records repository. This regulatory action is Phase I of the revisions and includes changes to provisions in 36 CFR parts 1223 (Managing Essential Records), 1224 (Records Disposition Programs), 1227 (General Records Schedules), 1229 (Emergency Authorization to Destroy Records), 1232 (Transfer of Records to Records Storage Facilities), 1233 (Transfer Use and Disposition of Records in a NARA Federal Records Center), and 1239 (Program Assistance and Inspections).
