Dispose of Records Request Form
The Dispose of Records Request form for churches and/or organizations is available free to download, customize and print 24/7 for your church administrative office, Human Resources Department and/or personal use.
What is the request form for disposing of documents or records?
This form is used prior to destroying or transferring records or documents in your organization's office. Departments must submit this form and obtain authorization before disposing of their records and then file this form.
Most organizations and/or churches have a retention period from which they start disposing of these records. Hard copies and electronic records are to be disposed of when their retention period has ended.
This request form is a valuable tool in an organization to ensure that records are disposed of when the time is appropriate for them to be disposed as the employee and/or volunteer has to submit this request form before ever disposing of their records or documents and has to be signed off to be authorized by the Departmental Records Management and a date with the signature. If it wasn't time for the records or documents to be destroyed then the request form would never get the signature and/or authorization to dispose of the records and this keeps any unexpected disasters from happening which is good for the employee or volunteer and the organization and/or church with the important records.

- Church Name - Insert your church or organization's name
- Request Form Title - The title of the form is below the church name
