State Records Act 1998 No 17
Copying and publishing of State archives
The Authority has power to make copies of any State archive and to publish any State archive. This power does not override any right in the nature of copyright and does not give the Authority power to do anything that would be an infringement of copyright.The Authority may cause a true copy that it has made of a State archive to be certified by the Authority as a true copy and a copy so certified has, for all purposes the same validity and effect as the record of which it is a copy. In particular, a copy so made and certified is admissible in evidence in any legal proceedings as if the copy were the original.
