RECORDS CLASS (Preferred term)
A group of records documenting similar activities, together with a disposal action to be applied to the group.
Data relating to the class comprises a title and record description, one or more disposition rules, and a unique entry or class number.
Typically classes are grouped together within a Disposition Schedule or Disposition Authority.
ISO 15489 Standard for Records Management advocates that classes are linked to a business classification scheme (BCS).
