General Government Terms and Conditions for Public Services 2018 (ARVODI)

Show this page in the menu

The General Government Terms and Conditions for Public Service Contracts (ARVODI) were first adopted by prime ministerial order of 5 March 2004, and have since undergone a number of amendments. They provide a uniform set of general terms and conditions between the State of the Netherlands (i.e. all ministries and public authorities and agencies for which the ministries are responsible) and third parties. The ARVODI 2016 have been revised in connection with the entry into force of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) on 25 May 2018. The amendments concern the clauses on processing personal data and on liability. In addition, a number of provisions have been reformulated or improved for the sake of clarity.
