Collections » Personal files of the former Central Security Service (CVD) and the National Security Service (BVD)

Description

The General Intelligence and Security Service (AIVD) has transferred some 71,000 files from the period 1946 – 1998 to the National Archives. These are personal files of the former Central Security Service (CVD) and the National Security Service (BVD). Both services are predecessors of the AIVD.

Only a few files can be viewed immediately. The vast majority of files have a disclosure restriction of 75 years. For inspection, a request can be submitted to the National Archives. The request is tested against a few conditions; there is permission from the person concerned, the person concerned has died or there is a research proposal. This is to protect the privacy of the persons under investigation.
