Practical information



Definition and rules

The Archives Nationales d'Outre-Mer service holds reusable public data.

The rules relating to the reuse of public data are defined by Law No. 78-753 of 17 July 1978 concerning the various measures for improving relations between the administration and the public.

The Archives Nationales d'Outre-Mer is a cultural service in the sense of Order No. 2005-650 of 6 June 2005 relating to the freedom of access to administrative documents and the reuse of public information, completing Law No.78-753 of 17 July 1978.

As such, the Archives Nationales d'Outre-Mer has the benefit of a derogatory regime allowing it to set the rules for the reuse of public data itself.

Unfiled dossier = extra handling!
The dossiers don't know how to count.
Please put them back in their box in the correct number order because they don't know how to do it themselves.
