Object audit date

Definition

The date an object was last checked in its location.

How to record

Always record the day, month and year in the same order. Always use the same character to separate each component. Be as specific as possible and indicate if the date is not known. Always give all four digits for the year.

Examples

08/10/1990; 06/1972; 1899; 2017-12-17

Use

Record once only for an object at any one time. Each Object audit date will be associated with an Audit reference number identifying separate audits. Previous Object audit dates may be retained.
