EVS/TC22 Information and Documentation is the technical committee of the Estonian Centre for Standardisation (EVS). As a P-member, EVS/TC22 is also mirroring works and projects of TC46/SC11. Lately there has been growing interest for revised ISO 15489-1:2016 Records management. Concepts and principles from our records managers’ community.

Now we are happy to say that the Estonian translation of a new ISO 15489 was adopted as a national standard and published in March 2017 (EVS-ISO 15489-1:2017). EVS/TC22 is actively participating in events to promote the use and knowledge of the revised ISO 15489.


Since 2013, several products of TC46/SC11 have been translated into Estonian and adopted as national standards – all three standards of the ISO 30300 MSR series (EVS-ISO 30300:2014; EVS-ISO 30301:2013 and EVS-ISO 30302:2016), also ISO/TR 18128 Risk assessment for records processes and systems is available in local translation. EVS/TC22 hopes that these products can help organisations to implement their information governance and information management programmes in a best professional way.
