Re: And as for how long...

Quite so. Which begs the question, if there are rules and policies in place regarding the release or publication of records, then just why is one concerned about how long one retains them for? Why destroy the records under DPA? If DPA is one's only concern, then keeping them for longer than the lifespan of the individual doesn't become a problem. As time goes on the "imperative" to destroy the records is removed.
