Although 99% of the holdings are now open to researchers, a few fonds—such as the construction bureaus and factory records relating to military production remain classified, as do personnel records and other documents relating to personal privacy, which by law are closed for 75 years.

Working conditions
Researchers can order up to 12 files at a time, and orders are delivered within 2 working days.
        Researchers using references to earlier citations in scholarly literature should be aware of the numerous changes in the name of the archive and numbers of fonds, and should also note that many fonds were transferred to the municipal archives (see above) after the appearance of the 1962 guide to GAORSS (d–91).
