On October 10, 2016, the Belgian State Archives organized a congress to reflect upon the impact of the GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation) on the core activities of archive services and on their relationship with citizens and users. Currently, the GDPR guarantees a better protection of personal data and gives individuals more rights regarding their personal data, including the so-called 'right to be forgotten.' Eminent speakers from abroad, senior public servants, legal practitioners, and archivists with extensive knowledge and international experience reflected on the priorities of archive services, on issues and opportunities to live up to criteria such as accessibility, reliability, authenticity, and completeness. But also on tools and procedures to defend and facilitate the importance of the right to information.
