The principles of information governance, known as the Generally Accepted Recordkeeping Principles® (the Principles), are grounded in practical experience and based on extensive consideration and analysis of legal doctrine and information theory, form the basis upon which every effective information governance program is built, measured, and – regardless of whether or not an organization or its personnel are aware of them – will one day be judged.

    ARMA International developed and published the Principles to foster general awareness of information governance standards and principles and to assist organizations in developing information management systems that comply with them.
