Other usage restrictions

There may be various other factors that restrict the use of archive material.


  • Conservational condition: If archive material is in a poor condition with regard to its conservation, it may be blocked for use to minimise its further deterioration. In such cases, we will try to enable the use of such archive material in other ways, such as through digital copies or microfilms.
  • Retention period: If the official retention period for a file is yet to expire, it will not yet be considered part of the archives; it will be treated as the registry material of the filing authority. Access to such items is not regulated by the Federal Archives Act (BArchG), but rather by the German Freedom of Information Act (IFG). If you would like to view such items, you must therefore submit a request directly to the filing authority.
