Article 8.


Any administrative document in the possession of a person under the employ of an authority is considered to belong to this authority to the extent that the administrative document relates to the performance of the authority's duties.

As far as the Flemish Parliament is concerned, the term "person under the employ" in the previous subsection is to be understood as "personnel member of the services of the parliament".


An administrative document of an authority which is deposited in an archive, is considered to be an administrative document which this authority has at its disposal.
