Officers of the National Archives Section are elected within the committee. The committees exclusively decide on the objects and tasks they deal with.

The National Archives Section is where members meet to consider issues facing officially designated national collections, e.g. acquisition policies, legal deposit, the management of large collections, whether held in archives, museums, libraries, dedicated audiovisual organisations or research institutes and universities. Recently the Section launched, in collaboration with IFLA, a global survey of legal deposit for sound and audiovisual materials on a country by country basis, in order to create a new world registry of legal deposit provision.
