Government email archiving is mandatory in 2021

The Multi-year Plan for Improving Central Government Information Management prescribes that all government organizations must implement a method of e-mail archiving by 2021, whereby this applies in In principle, all e-mail from officials is kept for a period of ten years. After that period, the e-mails are either destroyed or transferred to the National Archives. To meet this need, the Handbook ‘Storage of e-mail Rijksoverheid’ developed. This guide forms the basis for storing, selecting, destroying, transferring and archiving e-mail at the national government.
