CALL FOR PAPERS
Archival Legislation for Finance (ALFF) in Europe
25 October 2013
Central Bank of Iceland
Kalkofnsvegur 1, Reykjavik
Scholars, historians, lawyers & archivists are cordially invited to submit papers for the project 'Archival Legislation in Finance (ALFF) in Europe'.
The project 'Archival Legislation for Finance (ALFF) in Europe' was initiated in 2012 by EABH e.V. with the aim to identify and document the archival and records management regulations for financial institutions in Europe, their legal framework and their implementation. Thus, we hope to gain understanding of the legal structures, the periods and processes for archives and records management and hope to suggest best practice for financial institutions in building or improving their own archives and/or record management systems. In the long run, we hope to qualify the most practical legal frameworks for archival and records management in order to structure a proposal for harmonised European standards.
The third and final workshop of the series will investigate the existing legislation for archives and records management in the financial sectors of the following countries: Denmark, Sweden, Finland, Norway, Iceland, Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, Great Britain, Ireland and Russia.
The following issues are to be considered for submitted papers:
• The legal framework of records and historical archiving in financial institutions and legislation, if there is, for the protection of private archives of historical interest (in your own country).
• Differences on legal obligations to retain data (archives and current records) within financial institutions, e.g. central banks, savings banks, commercial banks, insurance companies and investment banks.
• Standard documentation required by the supervisory authority to be kept by financial institutions (in your own country).
• Internal practices and corporate governance guidelines inside financial institutions (in your own company) concerning historical archiving and current records management processes, periods and legal frameworks. To what extend is the practice of archiving influenced by the existing (national or regional) legislation?
Please send proposals until 1 September 2013 to firstname.lastname@example.org
