The formal status of the Nationaal Archief is enshrined in the 1995 Archives Act. This designates the Nationaal Archief as the central repository for archives transferred from national government bodies. That is, those institutions which have or had functions encompassing the Dutch nation as a whole. In particular, this definition refers to the High Councils of State, the Queen's Cabinet and the ministries. The Nationaal Archief also has an important public function. This is defined in its mission statement: "The Nationaal Archief supplies historical information to a varied public, based upon the content of its collection: the archives related to national government."
