Last Updated: Jan 06, 2020     Views: 3447

The overall approach to classifying information entrusted to or originating from the United Nations is based on the understanding that the work of the United Nations should be open and transparent, except insofar as the nature of information concerned is deemed confidential in accordance with the guidelines currently set out in the Secretary-General's bulletin: ST/SGB/2007/6.

The UN Archives and Records Management Section (ARMS) website has more information on Information sensitivity.
