Government of Kazakhstan adopts bill on improving archival affairs legislation
Minister of Culture and Sport Arystanbek Mukhamediuly reported that the bill was developed to improve the legislation in the sphere of Archive affairs. This is connected to the active integration of new information forms of documentation support and, in general, a complete transition to electronic document management.

The conceptual innovation of the bill will be the consolidation of requirements for the design, management and storage of traditional, paper, and electronic documents in the combined regulatory legal acts.
