"Jerzy Gaul, The organisation and scope of operations of the archives in Austria at the central
(nationwide) and regional level (federated states). The organisation and scope of operations of the
archives in Austria are related to the Austrian Republic’s federal system. At the central level there are
federal archives and at the national level — national ones. Among federal archives the Austrian State
Archive, which is the central one, plays an eminent role.
Founded in 1945 pursuant to the Archive Law dated 17 August 1999, the Austrian State Archive
is a state offi ce and reports to the Federal Chancellor. Four archives (departments) are subordinate to
the General Director — the General Administrative Archives, and the Finance and Court Chamber
Archives; the Republic’s Archive, the House, Court, and State Archives; and the War Archives.
Pursuant to the Archive Law dated 1999, the Austrian State Archive is, as the central archive, not
the only archive at the federal level. Some federal offi ces and institutions are authorized to operate
their own archives, including the Parliament’s head offi ce, the highest courts, universities, the national
library, and museums.
After the Word War Two and re-establishment of the federal system in Austria, regional archives
were established in autonomic federal states to form an integral part of a given state’s administration."
