4.2.10 - The repository shall have contemporaneous records of actions and administration processes that are relevant to AIP creation.
This is necessary in order to ensure that nothing relevant is omitted from the record that might be needed to provide an independent means to verify that all AIPs have been properly created in accord with the documented procedures (see 4.2.1. through 4.2.9). It is the responsibility of the repository to justify its practice in this respect.
Examples of Ways the Repository can Demonstrate it is Meeting this Requirement
Written documentation of decisions and/or action taken with timestamps; preservation metadata logged, stored, and linked to pertinent digital objects.
