Are there any changes planned to the law on archiving?

It is only since 2018 that there is a real legal basis for the archiving of documents in Luxembourg. However, the limitation of the reporting period to 100 years has not changed so far. On this subject, our deputy André Bauler asks some questions to the minister in charge, in particular on the possible adaptation of these periods to those in force in Belgium.


„Zanter 2018 huet Lëtzebuerg en Archivgesetz. Dat ass eng exzellent Saach, well mer virun dësem Datum keng ëmfaassend juristesch Basis haten, déi den Archivage vun Dokumenter gereegelt huet. Wéi mer um Gesetz geschafft hunn, gouf et eng Rëtsch Diskussioune rondrëm d’Kommunikatiounsfriste vu perséinlechen Daten. Säit 1800 leien dës Delaie bei 100 Joer am Etat civil. 2018 huet dorunner näischt dierfe geännert ginn. Dat war de politesche Choix vun der deemoleger Regierung.

An eisen Nopeschlänner ass dat awer manner streng. Sou sinn d’Fristen an Däitschland folgendermoossen organiséiert: 110 Joer fir Gebuertsakten, 80 Joer fir Hochzäitsakten an 30 Joer fir Stierfakten. A Frankräich sinn et 75 Joer fir Gebuerts- an Hochzäitsakten, dofir awer keng fir Stierfakten. An der Belsch sinn d’Delaien déi folgend: 100 Joer fir Gebuertsakten, 75 Joer fir Hochzäitsakten a 50 Joer fir Stierfakten.

Chercheuren an Historiker wieren hei am Land zefridden, wa mer eis Delaie wéinstens deene vun der Belsch géifen upassen. Si sinn och schonn e puer Mol bei der Regierung intervenéiert, ma et huet sech bis ewell näischt gedoen.

An deem Kontext wollt ech der Madamm Kultur- a Justizministesch folgend Froe stellen:

  1. Ginn et mëttlerweil Iwwerleeunge fir eis aktuell Delaien deene vun eise belschen Noperen unzepassen an den Artikel 43 am Code civil ofzeänneren? Gouf et an deem Sënn scho Gespréicher mat betraffene Familljefuerscher oder Vereenegungen, déi sech op deem Gebitt engagéieren an auskennen, also op genealogeschem Plang mat Method a System ënnerwee sinn an net scheie fir mat der Uni zesummenzeschaffen?
  2. Huet d’Madamm Ministesch eventuell scho virgesinn, fir Ännerungen an deem Sënn virzehuelen an nei Delaien anzeféieren?
  3. Wieren déi nei Dateschutzbestëmmungen eventuell d’Ursaach fir keng Upassunge virzehuelen?“
