Context on how this is used:
Annual audit of files: Each year we will provide a checklist-style worksheet to help service committees accomplish the audit of files. This audit should be completed before December 31 of each year. The circuit overseer will ask to see this checklist to make sure the audit has been carried out effectively. Your close attention to this will help ensure that your files are in good condition.
Material involving child abuse should be handled in line with our December 9, 2008, letter and the annual Checklist for Audit of Files. Notification of Disfellowshipping or Disassociation forms on individuals who have not been reinstated should also be kept indefinitely.
