Shredder Criteria

Shredder Criteria for the Destruction of
National Security Information

 

If shredding is your only method of destruction of paper-based National Security Information material, we recommend that you purchase the NSA approved high security shredder.  The list of NSA approved high security shredders may be obtained by calling the NSA National Information Assurance Service Center at (800) 688-6115 or visiting the Media Destruction Guidance page on the National Security Agency's website.

Burning, pulverizing, and pulping are still considered as approved methods for terminal destruction.
