Required Minimum Storage Conditions for Permanent Records

Texas Administrative Code Title 13, Section 7.164

(b) Records shall be stored in a manner that complies with the following:

  1. Offers protection from fire, water, steam, structural collapse, unauthorized access, theft, and other similar hazards; and

  2. Does not expose records to direct sunlight

(c) Records or storage boxes shall not be stored in contact with the floor.

While this does not directly apply to non-permanent records, such precautions should be taken until records reach their minimum required retention period.
