16. A public body must classify its documents in such a manner as to allow their retrieval. It must set up and keep up to date a list setting forth the order of classification of the documents. The list must be sufficiently precise to facilitate the exercise of the right of access.
For a public body referred to in paragraph 1 of the schedule to the Archives Act (chapter A-21.1), a classification plan takes the place of the list setting forth the order of classification of its documents.
A person has a right of access to the list or the classification plan on request, except as regards information confirmation of the existence of which may be refused under this Act
