Module 3: Classifcation

Section 3.8 Records made public after 75 years

Restricted classifications are not permanent. Records that are not classified as public should become public when the justification for the restrictive classification no longer exists. All records are presumed to be public 75 years after their creation, with the exception that records containing information about individuals 21 years of age or younger at the time of the record’s creation shall be presumed public after 100 years.
