The Australasian Digital Recordkeeping Initiative (ADRI) has agreed on the following vision for 2010-2015.

All governments in Australia and New Zealand (supported by their archives and records authority) implement a common approach to making, keeping and using digital records to ensure accountability and the long-term protection of vital cultural heritage.

This commonality leads to improved efficiency, economy and interoperability across participating jurisdictions.

For more information see Australasian Digital Recordkeeping Initiative, a paper by Adrian Cunningham of the National Archives of Australia presented at the Society of American Archivists Conference in Washington DC on 3 August 2006.
