      As laid down by Dutch national law the fundamental selection instrument (Basis Selectie Document, BSD) is to be used in national and regional government archives to separate records that should be preserved from records for which destruction is warranted. New archival legislation promulgated in 1995 compels archives' administrators to deposit records not warranted for destruction with the Dutch national archives, the Rijksarchiefdienst (RAD), upon the twentieth year after their year of closing. The old law (1962) enforced a fifty-year period. This BSD is a product of the PIVOT method. This method is designed by the RAD to control the tidal wave of records the RAD anticipated after promulgation. The BSD establishes a valuation for all terms of reference the National Institute of Public Health and Environmental Protection (RIVM) and it's predecessor , the National Institute of Public Health (RIV), were commissioned with from 1940 up to and including 1995. These terms of reference are referred to as acts (handelingen). They are also described in the RIVM report 840701001 titled 'Healthy again tomorrow; an institutional investigation of the tasks and terms of reference of the National Institute of Public Health and Environmental Protection 1940-1995.' The acts are grouped by actor, the authority responsible, and are detailed by their valuation, scope, period of execution, laboratory in charge, basic law, source of information, policy phase and, if warranted for destruction, their preservation period. The nine fundamental criteria that governed the valuation of the acts are also specified.<br>
