This statement was developed by ICA and the International Conference of
Information Commissioners <https://www.informationcommissioners.org/>,
supported by ARMA International <https://www.arma.org/?>, CODATA
<https://www.codata.eu/>, Digital Preservation Coalition
<https://www.dpconline.org/>, Research Data Alliance
<https://www.rd-alliance.org/>, UNESCO Memory of the World

It is built on three principles:

   1. Decisions must be documented,
   2. Records and data should be secured and preserved in all sectors, and
   3. The security, preservation, and access to digital content should be
   facilitated during the shutdown

The signatories hope the archives, records, data and allied communities
will support the statement and join us in underscoring the importance of
the duty to document, now and for the future.
COVID-19: The duty to document does not cease in a crisis, it becomes more

We, the signatories of this statement, call on governments, businesses,
and research institutions around the world to document their decisions and
transactions now and for the future. Building on the UNESCO communique
‘Turning the threat of COVID-19 into an opportunity for greater support to
documentary heritage’ and reinforcing the call that decision-makers in the
public and private sectors recognise the value of records management and
archives, the statement has three calls to action.
