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.
This index contains 33,598 historical person listings.
