There is mainly no fee for examining the documents in the authorities’ premises but you may have to pay a fee for copies of the material.

Background information

As a rule, all official activities and their documentation are public. This means that all official documents are public unless otherwise provided in the law. If a document is kept secret, the authority concerned must justify its decision not to make the document public. Moreover, every individual has mainly the right to access documents pertaining to themselves even if they were ordered to be kept secret by law.

The authorities must organise the documents administration so that citizens have easy access to the documents and the information contained in them. As part of the documents and information service, the documents administration keeps documents available to the public and assists in the use of the archives.
