At the end of an asset’s lifecycle, the Dispose phase is the final list of activities to terminate the asset’s digital information and data record existence.

These are the rules and workflow processes to ensure an orderly and compliant shutdown of the body of recordation.

For example, at the maturity of a limited partnership fund, there is a final disbursement of assets and dissolution of the entity. Traditional recordkeeping principles and requirements continue to apply to any digital records before deprecation.
