According to the procedure, in order to destroy the documentation, a set of documents should be prepared in duplicate in a paper version. The prepared set of documents should be submitted to Ms Sylwia Krupińska for verification and determination of the further course of the proceedings.

Archiving of documents is carried out in accordance with the Rector's Regulation No. 12/2017 of July 5, 2017 on: approval of office norms, i.e. office instructions of the Gdańsk University of Technology, instructions on the organization and scope of operation of the enterprise archive of Gdańsk University of Technology.

The files of finally settled cases are kept in organizational units for a period of two years, counting from 1 January of the year following the closing of the case file. After the expiry of the storage period in organizational units, the files should be submitted to the Archives of the Gdańsk University of Technology.

Documentation created and received by the Gdańsk University of Technology is divided into:

  • archival materials (category A) included in the state archival resource, of permanent importance as a source of information of historical value,
  • non-archival documentation (category B), i.e. any other documentation having only practical temporal significance. The length of the period of keeping non-archival documentation in years is defined by a letter symbol and a number in Arabic (e.g. B2, B5, B10)

The letter symbol "Bc" means a category of documentation of short-term practical significance, which, after full use, is transferred from the organizational unit to waste paper in agreement with the Archives of the Gdańsk University of Technology.

  • number all written pages with a soft pencil in the upper right corner, and on the back of the page in the left,
