Sustainability

Archives must conform to the Archiefregeling 2009 (Archival Regulation). The Archiefregeling 2009 contains regulations on the organised and accessible state of archival records as well as on the sustainability of archival records.

Archives that do not conform to these standards and regulations must be processed before they can be transferred. Digital objects, including the media, must legally conform to the specific requirements formulated in the Regeling duurzaamheid archiefbescheiden.
