Implementation of and transfer to electronic document circulation require creation of the optimal conditions for the government storage of electronic records and information resources.
In connection with the above, the need in establishing the Central State Electronic Archives of Ukraine arose, which was founded on May 12, 2007 as a single storage point of the electronic records of the National Archival Fund in Ukraine.

The Central State Electronic Archives of Ukraine stores electronic records and information resources of the National Archival Fund, keeps records thereof, ensures their integrity, and creates conditions for their use.
The Archives keeps safe:
- electronic records of institutions and agencies transferred by state archives;
- electronic records and information resources of natural persons transferred either by state archives or their owners;
- electronic records of legal entities and natural persons received from abroad;
- registration documents and archive information books (descriptions, catalogues, field guides etc).
