Service records are raised and maintained to assist in the effective management and administration of members both during and after their service.
Service records are classified into two categories:
Personal records include all those documents relating to a member’s routine administration, career management and training whilst health records include medical, dental and psychological records.
Defence Archives is currently processing an increased number of requests. The current turn around time for accessing complete copies of service records is up to 90 days. Less complex requests such as service reports are being completed within 30 days.
