ELICOS standards are protected through legislative instruments which ensure certain requirements are met before English language providers are registered and that they maintain these requirements throughout the course of their registration. This approach provides confidence for all stakeholders involved in the provision of English language instruction.
The ELICOS Standards detail what is required from ELICOS providers and the requirement that they maintain the registration Standards so they can continue to be registered as a CRICOS provider.
- paper files and documents
- volumes and registers
- maps, plans, charts and drawings
- photographic media including photographic prints and negatives, film, microforms, and x-rays
- magnetic media such as digital tape, video and audio cassettes, and
- optical media such as CDs and DVDs.
This standard does not cover the storage of digital records in online systems or network servers.
The principles of this standard require NSW public offices to make decisions and take action to ensure that the storage of records is effective in protecting records from deterioration and are cost efficient. The principles are:
- Location and buildings
- Environmental controls
- Shelving and packaging
- Identification and control, and
Each of these principles is supported by mandatory compliance requirements. Compliance with this standard will be monitored by State Records and reported on in its Annual Report.
There is a compliance timetable indicating how the requirements of the standard are to be implemented and by what dates. Public offices will be advised in advance of any compliance monitoring activities.
Video/visual surveillance generally involves the use of photographic, video or electronic recording equipment for the surveillance or monitoring of a particular scene, location or activity. Examples of its use include the installation of closed circuit television (CCTV) operations for the monitoring of property, office foyers or workplace areas.
Surveillance may be overt or covert. Overt visual surveillance generally involves the use of unconcealed surveillance equipment, often signposted to draw attention to the fact that an individual is under observation. Covert visual surveillance involves the use of hidden or concealed recording equipment without agreement or notification of the fact that an individual's activities are being recorded. The conduct of covert visual surveillance in the workplace is subject to the provisions of the Workplace Surveillance Act 2005 (NSW).
