  • How to use the Records
    This series comprises unserialised records of the Office of Fair Trading (VA 3084) and includes records created by its predecessor agency the Ministry of Consumer Affairs (VA 1026). The records have been accessioned into temporary consignments for secondary storage at the Public Record Office.

    A previous series to this series is VPRS 8177 Unserialised Records, consignments of which were similarly transferred into secondary storage by the Ministry of Consumer Affairs prior to October 1992. Records in both these series include case files of the Small Claims Tribunal and the Residential Tenancies Tribunal. This series may also include case files of the Credit Tribunal and the Residential Tenancies Tribunal administering the Caravan Parks and Moveable Dwellings Act and the Rooming Houses Act. The case files are sentenced temporary records in accordance with PROS 91/003, the sentence being Temporary, destroy 15 years after creation.

THE SAMPLE WAS NOT REMOVED from the records prior to the secondary storage transfers occurring. The sample must be segregated prior to the destruction of the temporary records.
