MoReq2010LogoTransparentBackgroundIIt is now widely known that one software company started to have its software tested for Moreq2010 compliance last month (May, 2013).  If all goes well, the tests should be completed by the end of July (2013).  Two other suppliers publicly declared their support for Moreq2010, and their intention to be tested, over a year ago – but have not yet made a move.  Will the forthcoming likely certification act as a catalyst to revitalise Moreq2010 – or will it be a one-off leaving Moreq201 moribund?  watch this space.

The MoReq2010LogoMoReq2010 consultation portal is now open.  This marks a crucial step for Moreq - the records management community is counting on full and meaningful collaboration to ensure that MoReq2010 meets everyone's needs - not just those of a vocal minority.  To help make this happen, go to, register, and make your contributions.  Don't delay - the consultation may not be open for long! 

At the beginning, the portal contains only a little that you can comment on.  This will be added to gradually, so make a point of visiting the portal frequently.
