ABSTRACT

Although we expect the Records Freezing system to be introduced through the revision of the Public Records Management Act, the system alone has limitations in preventing illegal disposal of records. If some records have already been destroyed illegally, the agency should identify the reason and prepare corrective action and improvement measures to prevent the repetition of such a wrongful disposal. The purpose of this study is to analyze the NARA’s inspection program for unauthorized disposal based on the “Records Management Oversight and Reporting Program” and to find implications for improving the control system of public records disposal. NARA’s program is particularly effective in the prevention and post-processing of unauthorized disposal. In this study, firstly, the federal records management oversight and reporting program in the United States was investigated in the legal system. Secondly, the status of NARA’s control of unauthorized disposal cases was reviewed and a case of SEC’s MUI records was analyzed for showing the systematic procedure of NARA’s inspection. Finally, we have summed up the implications of this program for improving NAK’s control system of illegal disposal of public records.
