This page addresses general audiovisual records. It includes one chapter from the APHIS Records Management Handbook and one General Records Schedules (GRS).

The dispositions contained in the GRS are mandatory and take precedence over APHIS dispositions.

All non-record copies are treated as informational unless separately scheduled. Informational copies can be destroyed when no longer needed, but cannot be retained beyond the retention period for the recordkeeping copies.
