"An attorney has recently told a department that they must keep web pages for 7 years."


"Wouldn't these, as most things, be retained according to content? "
You are correct in stating that records, regardless of form, format, or media created and stored on need to be assessed on a content basis.  If you are going directly to a web format and skipping the print process altogether, those are original records that need to be managed according to content.

"  Does anyone know of any regulations which require web pages to be kept and for how long?"
It's not the media, it's the contentn that matters.  Since, according to your address, you work for Sprint, I would think the frst place to look would be the multitude regulations offered by the FCC.

Another two cents for Wednesday.
