ABSTRACT

The record management system of the National Assembly was remarkably reformed as ‘Record Management Act’ was enacted in 1999. At first, the records of the National Assembly had been permanently managed by the general services division, the proceeding division and the stenograph division. But as Record Management Act was enacted, the system was remarkably reformed. ‘The National Assembly Archives’ was set up for the first time since the National Assembly was established in 1948. In addition, the proceeding division and the stenograph division were set up as ‘the National Assembly Record Management Rules’ were laid down. In result, The National Assembly Archives took to comprehensively manage records that had been scattered over ‘the National Assembly Secretariat’, ‘the National Assembly Library’ and otherwise, and so it had been true to its name. The two changes, the enactment of Record Management Act and the reform of the National Assembly record management system, well show how national records are managed by constitutional institutions. ‘Governmental Document Regulations’ was enacted ahead of Record Management Act, but there was no obligation to apply it to the National Assembly. But Record Management Act, enacted in the form of ‘a law’ in 1999, began to be in force even in constitutional institutions and therefore the National Assembly felt the need to take follow-up measures so as to bring the act to effect smoothly. As a part of follow-up measures, the National Assembly set up The National Assembly Archives and reformed the National Assembly Record Management Rules. This study was performed to ascertain how Record Management Act affected the National Assembly, how the National Assembly coped with the act, and how the record management system of the National Assembly changed.
