Requirements for the Management of Electronic Records

n. (MoReq, abbr.) Model specifications for electronic records management system requirements.


MoReq was developed by Cornwell Management Consultants and is used in the European Communities. The document is available online at


InterPARES 2002, p. 29–30 MoReq has been designed to be 'pragmatic' and 'usable,' and its purpose is to ensure that an ERMS will 'manage electronic records with the desired levels of confidence and integrity.' . . . Like DoD 5015.2, MoReq is a software specification, and accordingly it differs from the InterPARES requirements in that it explicitly focuses on system functionality over procedures, and on implementation methods over records management principles.
