6.10.4 Archived Files


Once archived, RCG files remain with DVA until destroyed.  Older Defence archived files however become the property of Australian Defence Archives. Should RCG require information from a file held by Australian Defence Archives the following action is to be taken:

  • obtain the required record by completing the Request For Archived File proforma on the following page, and
  • once the record is received, if the file is a injury claim file, it should be rebadged with an appropriate Defcare file reference and stored within DVA. 
  • if the record is anything other than an injury claim file once finished with the record, return to the original Australian Archive repository.
