The Development of National Archives Administration

In order to improve the management and transparency of important documentation, on December 15, 1999 the ROC government passed the Archives Act. This act went into effect on January 1, 2002, and provided a legal foundation for an archives administration system.

On March 1, 2000, the Research, Development, and Evaluation Commission (RDEC) setup the National Archives Administration Preparatory Office, laying the ground work and developing plans for a centralized management organization. On October 24, 2001, the Organic Act of the National Archives Administration was passed, and on November 23 that same year, the National Archives Administration was formally established as a part of the RDEC. On August 21, 2013, the president promulgated the Organic Act Establishing the National Archives Administration, National Development Council. This act established the Administration as a part of the newly named National Development Council effective on January 22, 2014.
