The Scientific Archivists Group (SAG) is a professional association that was established in 1981. We are here primarily for those in the healthcare sciences with responsibility for, or an interest in: 

  • records management processes;
  • the establishment and management of GxP archives; and
  • the lifecycle management of regulated scientific records.

Whilst we welcome members from anywhere and make efforts to provide support globally, our focus is the UK and European regulatory environment and influencing regulators and industry in those geographic areas. We engage with our members and key stakeholders through events, training, networking and publications – including internet and social media, where appropriate.

For more information about the group, please refer to the About Us page.
