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.

Three new training courses from the Scientific Archivists Group

The Scientific Archivists Group have developed three new training courses to complement their existing offerings.

These courses will be invaluable to archivists and records managers working in healthcare and life sciences regulated industries.
The new courses are:

Full details are available on the Training page.

All new courses will be held at the Heathrow Touchbase Meeting Centre in Hounslow, and feature an Early Bird discounted price of £250 for SAG members, or £295 for non-members.
Early Bird prices are available until 6 weeks before each course is ran. After that, the normal price is £350 for SAG members, or £395 for non-members.
SAG members receive a £45 discount on the cost of these courses, but the SAG membership fee is only £60.
So, if you take up SAG membership, it will effectively only cost you £15 for the first year! So why not join SAG today.
To make joining easier, we have provided SAG membership as an optional extra when making your booking.
Add SAG membership to your course booking and then use the SAG discount code.

2017 Manchester Conference

Thank you to everyone who attended this year's sell-out Scientific Archivists Group annual conference in Manchester.
The impressive Midland Hotel was the venue for two days of informative, thought provoking and entertaining presentations from a wide variety of speakers, on subjects relating to records management and archiving.
It's not all work and no play, as the pictures show - the Gala Dinner was a great chance to relax and network on the Thursday evening.
We hope to see many of you at next year's conference, which will be from 26-27 April 2018 at the Mercure Hotel on Brighton's seafront.
As usual, there will be special rates for members, and an additional “early-bird” discount to encourage you to get your reservation in early.
