Normal Administrative Practice. This is the exception to the general prohibition on disposal of Commonwealth records that allows the disposal (destruction, transfer or alteration) of records in the normal course of business without a disposal authority. This disposal can only take place provided that there is no adverse risk to the proper recording of agency business. NAP is often interpreted as allowing the disposal of material of a facilitative or transitory nature created or acquired by agency officers during the course of day-to-day business. The NAP provision does not apply to the addition to, or alteration of, records that have been in existence for more than 25 years.
This concept allows for the destruction on a routine basis, without authorisation, of records which have no continuing value to the organisation.
