We get hundreds applications a week worldwide that we process free of charge (or, for a nominal administrative fee, if recommendations for new record titles). A representative of the Records Management Team evaluates that submission independently and all proof of proposed record title is reviewed.
We have a waiting time of up to 12 weeks to make sure all record applications are affordable and accessible. Nevertheless, there are instances where large volumes of applications are submitted and our response times must be changed.
- The average waiting period for all applications is up to 15 weeks.
- The total processing time to review documentation of attempted documents is up to 15 weeks.
- Please upgrade to our Preferred Application & Preferred Evidence Review process that can reduce your waiting time to five working days.
