National Declassification Center Issues First Report

by Sabrina I. Pacifici on August 4, 2010

News release: “The National Archives National Declassification Center (NDC) has issued its first status report, covering the reporting period of January 1- June 30, 2010. During this time, nearly 8 million pages of material were processed and made available to the public. The creation of the NDC is specified in the Executive Order on Classified National Security Information signed by President Obama on December 29, 2009. The NDC is charged with streamlining declassification processes, facilitating quality assurance measures, and implementing standard training for declassification reviewers. “By streamlining the declassification process, the NDC is ushering in a new day in the world of access, allowing the National Archives to make more records available for public scrutiny much more quickly,” said Archivist of the United States David S. Ferriero. “I’m pleased the NDC is off to such a great start.”
