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


Article 4 of the 1995 Archives Decree states that the preparation procedure from the General Administrative Law (AWB) is applicable to the design of a retention schedule. This means that as many people as possible must be able to provide input. For this reason, the retention schedule is published on this website and also the OCenW website for a period of six weeks after the triangular consultation is complete, accompanied by the RIO and a report on the triangular consultation. The schedule is also presented in this period to the Council for Culture for their feedback.
