About legislation

The Provincial Archives of Åland was established under the Archives Act of Åland (ÅFS 2004:13) as the official archives institution of the Government of Åland. The Archives Act of Finland (FFS 1994:831) is, however, applied to state authorities operating in the Åland province, with the restrictions set out in section 30, paragraph 17 of the Act on the Autonomy of Åland (FFS 1991:1144):

"Archives originating from state government authorities operating in the province shall be removed from the province only after consultation with the provincial government."
