Archiving

The archives consist of records received or produced at the Ministry in the performance of its duties.

The Ministry records will be kept as follows:

  • documents as of 2004 in the Ministry archives,
  • documents before 2004 in the National Archives.

The same time limits apply to projects and working group documents in the government Project Register (HARE).

Information on government working groups, committees, boards, advisory boards and projects, including legislative projects, since 1998 are available in the government Project Register.

A fixed fee is charged for document copies, and the delivery costs are charged separately. Documents will not be given to private persons or NGOs on loan but can be consulted in the Ministry premises.
