NARA Certification - For Government Agency Compliance
Before storing records at an external facility, federal agencies and entities must certify that a facility meets the 36 CFR 1234 standards before NARA can grant the required approval.
Access has NARA approved facilities throughout the United States, which provide federal agencies with compliant options for securely storing and managing their records.

What is offsite storage?
Offsite storage is any data or document facility that is physically separate from the organization. Offsite storage plays a vital role in record management, providing cost-effective storage and disaster recovery services.
How do I know what I’ve stored?
Our FileBRIDGE system lets you manage records, request service, search for documents, add new records, get records delivered, and more. Run analytics to get data on what is stored. Run reports on the status of all your records. Be in control of everything from one dashboard.
How can I access my stored documents?
That’s incredibly easy. With rapid document delivery, you can get standard delivery, either physically or virtually through our scan-on-demand offering. With complete records lifecycle management, your documents and their location are always known. They’re easy to find and easy to deliver – probably quicker than your old storeroom.
How much do records management and document storage cost?
There’s no one set price. It depends on the amount of records and the type of media. Connect with one of our service specialists to walk you through all the options. We’re here to make sure you get the storage solution that best fits your needs.
What kinds of files and media can you store?
Our traditional offsite storage is ideal for bulk paper document storage – invoices, legal documents, HR records, and more. Our media and underground vaults are ideal for sensitive media like film, tape, blueprints, and x-rays. However, underground vaults can even be used for sensitive documents for an added layer of security.
How does confidential document storage work?
Each Access facility is governed by strict chain-of-custody procedures and maintains controlled access. This means that your confidential documents will have a unique identifier attached, allowing you to track where they are at any time. Whenever an item is retrieved, accessed, or distributed, this information goes into the permanent unique record for that item.
How do you ensure secure storage with chain of custody?
Our offsite document storage centers and facilities ensure compliant chain of custody, meaning you can verify the status of all your documents at every stage of the storage and retrieval process. We are fully compliant and PRISM Privacy+ certified. All our document storage solutions are 100% secure and confidential.
Can professional secure document storage services help with regulatory compliance?
Absolutely. Our information management and regulatory compliance services naturally fit in with document storage and records management. We help identify how documents must be stored, how long, and assist with secure destruction when document retention schedules expire. We help automate the regulatory compliance process so you don’t have to get bogged down in bureaucratic rules and regulations.
Information is your most valuable asset. It’s our passion.
