This document provides model, high-level functional requirements and associated guidance for software applications that are intended to manage digital records (including digital copies of analogue source records), either as the main purpose of the application or as a part of an application that is primarily intended to enable other business functions and processes.

It does not include:

— functional requirements for applications that manage analogue records;

— generic design requirements such as reporting, application administration and performance;

— requirements for the long-term preservation of digital records in a dedicated preservation environment;

NOTE The model requirements are intended to encourage the deployment of applications that do not hinder long-term preservation of records. As such, some of the requirements support long-term digital preservation outcomes.

— implementation guidance for applications that manages analogue and/or digital records. Such guidance can be found in ISO/TS 16175-2:—[1].

[1] Under development. Stage at the time of publication: ISO/DTS 16175-2:2020.
