The National Archives to Make Changes to Fees

NOTE: This is about an announcement from The National Archives in Kew, Richmond, Surrey, England, not from the National Archives and Records Administration in the United States.

Starting 1 February 2019, there will be changes to some of the fees charged by The National Archives. Quoting from the announcement at http://livelb.nationalarchives.gov.uk/about/news/changes-to-our-fees/:

“As a government department providing a public service, we are able to charge for some statutory services (as defined by the Public Records Act ) on a cost recovery basis. The Fees Order, which regulates our fees, has been refreshed from the last calculation which came into effect 1 April 2017. We are maintaining the standard approach in line with the HM Treasury publication, Managing Public Money, to set charges at a level that will recover full costs, ensuring that The National Archives neither profits at the expense of consumers nor makes a loss for taxpayers to subsidise.

“There are both price increases and decreases, for example a digital copy up to A3 size goes up by 10p to £1.20. Currently, our research service cost £23.35 per 15 minutes, this will go up by £1.00 however, the charge for a copy of a naturalisation certificate will go down by 25p to £27.15.”

Why is it a misleading title? They are The National Archives and they are altering their fee structure. Just because you are only aware of NARA doesn’t mean that it is the only thing with the name national archives in its title in the world.

    David, I, too, read it wrong in the initial thumbnail post by Dick. It was only when I clicked on the “read more..”, that I realized it was for the UK. You are in good company Broomhilda! 🙂
