Record types include correspondence, applications, evaluation and approval forms, and reports.

Agencies with their own internal human resources services should use the Human Resource ARCS Supplement (HRAS), the Emergency Health Services ARCS Supplement, or the Liquor Distribution ARCS Supplement. Agencies must be registered to use HRAS. For guidance, please contact your Records Officer.
