    4. promoting the role and value of archives for advancing learning and research, education and culture, and social and economic life;

    5. improving the management of processes, reinforcing transparency and supporting good governance.

    This document does not apply to records centres responsible for records that are still in the legal custody of the organization that created or received them, although it is recognized that some archives also have responsibilities for appraising, acquiring, and managing the current records of organizations that can or not be transferred to the archives for permanent retention.
