FULL AND ACCURATE RECORDS  (Preferred term)

Full and accurate records must be: compliant with the recordkeeping requirements arising from the regulatory and accountability environment in which the organisation operates; adequate for the purposes for which they are kept; complete containing not only the content, but also the structural and contextual information necessary to document a transaction; meaningful containing information and/or linkages that ensure the business context in which the record was created and used is apparent; comprehensive documenting the complete range of the organisation's business for which evidence is required; accurate to reflect the transactions that they document; authentic enabling proof that they are what they purport to be and that their purported creators did indeed create them; and inviolate securely maintained to prevent unauthorised access, alteration or removal.
