Retention schedules

Publication and enactment

Up until 2008, complete retention schedules were published in the Staatscourant (the official newspaper of the Dutch state) as required by the 1995 Public Records Act. However, as part of the Cabinet programme 'Informatie op orde', this obligation has been abolished and the Staatscourant now only publishes an announcement of the final decision.
