National Archives of the Netherlands (Ministry of Education, Culture and Science)

Legal tasks: who does what?

The 1995 Public Records Act specifies that each government body must formulate retention schedules for their archives. Also concerned are:

  • The Minister of Education, Culture, and Science (OCW)
  • The Head of the State Archives Service (the algemene rijksarchivaris)
  • The Council for Culture (Raad voor Cultuur)
  • Coordinating agencies
  • Citizens
  • External experts
