General Records Authorities covering common business activities

General records authorities (GRAs) set out requirements for keeping, destroying or transferring records of business common to many agencies. The National Archives prepares and issues these authorities. The Administrative Functions Disposal Authority (AFDA) and AFDA Express are GRAs for a range of common administrative functions.

Below is the current set of GRAs available for use by Australian Government agencies. They can be viewed by a shortened or abbreviated title or by number. Agency specific records authorities are used for records of agency core business.
