Please be aware that charges for overdue government loans from our Wellington archive will be reintroduced from 1 September 2020. Overdue charges were temporarily suspended following the COVID-19 lockdown.

We recommend that clients with overdue loans from the Wellington archive arrange the return of the records before 1 September or request an extension to the loan period as soon as possible.

This service is for the temporary return of public records. Records may be loaned to the controlling organisation. This is usually the office that created the record or its successors.

Regulated organisations must follow the following conditions and procedures. This is to make sure of the safety and preservation of records while in their care.

For more information, on these procedures please read the Government Loans Service National Policy and the Government Loans Procedures for Clients .
