ABSTRACT

Although a few years have passed since the importance of the public record management became the subject, the management of the minutes which is produced from the deliberation and decision-making process of an important policy relatively was been neglected the while. When institutionally inspecting at present, the minutes production is based upon Record Management Law, and the minutes opening is based upon Freedom of Information Act. Although the minutes must be made out according to Record Management Law, it is not well operated. So, the minutes formally is made out and there was actually the important minutes excepted from the management object. Opening of the minutes made by Article 9 of Freedom of Information Act has the problem that be used as a basis of dividing unfairly into closed opening because the reason of the closed opening is vague. This study analyzes the problem of production and opening of the current minutes. It also considers Sunshine Act in USA and suggests a institutional ways for production and opening of Korean minutes. We can think of two institutional ways for production and opening of the minutes. One is making a separate law like Sunshine Act in USA. The other is revising the existing laws. In reality it's very difficult to make a new law for minute production and opening. Therefore, the purpose of this study is to suggest the way for revising Record Management Law and Freedom of Information Act that include minutes related regulations. The record must be fundamentally produced and opened for a nation and people as public records is the records of the nation and people as well as an authority which produced those records. If the minutes is produced and opened from a institutional change through the revision of Record Management Law and Freedom of Information Act, the minutes can not only help the responsible administration to realize but be utilized to important historical records as a basis data of an important policy decision-making.
