ISO 30301(2011) is  a Type A Management System Standard (MSS).  Since 2012, the ISO MSS Type A standards must follow the structure, core text and definitions known as “High Level Structure - HLS” published in Annex SL of ISO/IEC Directives Part 1 and Consolidated ISO Supplement. This mandate applies for all new MSS and will be incorporated into the revision of all existing MSS's. ISO 30301 was drafted at the same time as the HLS, and is recognized as one of the early adopters. However after its publication in 2011 some changes, mainly in wording, were introduce in the HLS. In this second edition all texts and definitions are revised against the HLS.      

Specific requirements for the Management System for Records (MSR) are mainly in clause 8 Operation and the normative Annex A. Now they are  linked to the structure and guidelines of the 2016 edition of ISO 15489 Records Management. Concepts and principles.
