The BRL and KNA prescribe that information must be permanently stored in an e-depot. An e-depot is a certified storage place for durable storage of digital data. DANS is often used for this purpose in the field of archaeology.
On the basis of (proposed) BRL provisions, digital files must comply with the preferred formats of DANS in the near future. You can view the preferred formats here. DANS has defined a preferred format for each type of file (such as databases, text documents, etc.). These are file formats that are internationally trusted to offer the best guarantees for usability, accessibility and sustainability for new or additional research in the long term.
