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

Formal transfer

Before the transfer, the State Archives Service will provide a formal recommendation on the legal authorisation and accessibility of the archive after transfer. Other formal steps must be taken before the transfer can be completed, particularly the formation of a ‘declaration of transfer’. With this declaration, the archive is officially transferred to the State Archives Service and becomes the responsibility of the Minister for Education, Culture and Science (OCenW).
