There are regulations for the use of the archive.
The access regulations are based on the Archives Act of the Canton of Bern (ArchG):
- public: freely accessible archive material
- Standard protection period: 30 years after the dossier is closed.
- Extended/extended protection period: 110 years after the dossier has been finalised (applies in particular to personal data requiring special protection)
- As the Archives of Medical History house many holdings of private origin, it is possible that special access conditions were agreed when the archive was taken over. These are listed in the data record.
A request for access must be submitted for access to the records.
