Since ISO 30301- Management system for records- Requirements  second edition was published in 2019, the guidelines for implementation in  ISO 30302- Management system for records- Guidelines for implementation  standard required revision.

WG8 Management systems for records (MSR), with Anki Steen (from SIS- Sweden) as Project leader started the revision in August 2020 in a framework of 24 months for publication.

Differences with the first version of ISO 30301 in the edition of 2019 are not substantial, but a group of experts made a preliminary report recommending a full revision of  ISO 30302. The revision is covering the alignment of clauses and subclauses to the new ones in ISO 30301, alignment of wording and terminology, as well as good practices extracted from the organizations that have already implemented an MSR based on ISO 30301.

In the first steps of the working group, a comparison between the two editions of ISO 30301 was drafted and its consequences for the implementation guidelines. This comparison is published (see Additional Resources). Organizations might find this comparison useful when making the transition from the previous edition of ISO 30301- Management system for records-Requirements
