ABSTRACT

This year marks the 20th anniversary of the enactment of legislation related to records in Korea. The Public Records Management Act of Korea deals with the entire process from production to classification, transfer, and utilization for all records. Recently, the National Archives of Korea is in the process of discussing amending laws to implement records management innovations. It is necessary to take a look at the cases of advanced countries abroad, which have a long tradition of Archival management and focus on preservation records. In this study, Germany’s 「Federal Archives Act」 was targeted. Germany is regarded as a country with a long tradition of managing preservation records. Especially, we have something in common that has experienced the history of division like our country. For the research results, each clause of Germany’s 「Federal Archives Act」 was to be analyzed to understand Germany’s Archival Management System. As a country that has experienced the division of Germany and unification, it maintains Archival management after unification. Therefore, we drew on the characteristics of Germany’s Archival management law and system and studied what implications could be given to our country.
