The Council for Culture

The Council for Culture is a permanent advisory council for the Minister of Education Culture & Science (OCenW) and has two archival commissions. As required by the archival legislation, the Council advises the Minister of OCenW about each draft of a retention schedule. The Council reviews the schedules in light of requirements in archival legislation concerning procedures and content. Moreover, the Council also provides advice (both solicited and unsolicited) about archival policy to the Minister of OCenW.
