Unlike paper records, accessing electronic records needs to be supported by specific combination of hardware and software. The electronic records have longer life span than the storage media, hardware, software and the formats that were used for the production of such records. Because the quality of electronic record can become deteriorated as time goes on, we need to have appropriate mechanisms to secure the long-term preservation and access to the digital information at a certain point in the future. Based on this reality, this study proposes the functions and the development method of the format registry, which efficiently supports the preservation strategy such as migration and emulation, collecting and managing technical information elements. These elements consist of the foundation of the long-term preservation of the electronic records.
