Organizations, in an attempt to increase speed and efficiency for carrying out their activities, have been increasing the use of digital records. These documents carry essential information for obtaining organizational objectives and their characteristics allow easier access to information, flexibility in project development, simultaneous sharing of information between individuals and organizations, and promote the dissemination of culturally relevant collections. However, for benefiting of such features it is necessary to adopt the management of documents and information in digital environments, which can be a challenge to the current technological context of information. Thus, this study presents the main elements identified in the application of classification and evaluation of records in a System of Digital Document Management - DRMS - in accordance with the guidelines of the Model Requirements for Information Systems Management of Archival documents - and ARQ-Brasil, and its implications were analyzed. This initiative serves as an aid for establishing projects that aim to manage documents in digital media, while sharing experiences and knowledge for the development of technology applied to information.
