Archival arrangement and accessibility

The 1995 Public Records Act explicitly states that archival records must be transferred and preserved not only in a proper and orderly state, but that they must also be accessible.

The requirement that the government places to the 'orderly and accessible state' are laid out in the Ministerial Regulation on Public Records (Archiefregeling 2009).
