For rules on archival description and systems of archival arrangement, there are no set international or universal standards. There are national standards which have attempted to ensure similarity inter-nationally.
Below is a link for the Canadian Council of Archives. They have recently posted a free PDF download of Part I of the "Rules for Archival Description (RAD)/Règles pour la description des documents d¹archives." Part II of these rules is expected to be posted by summer 2002.
All their publications are available in French and English. The background to Part I gives a good overview of current thinking and approches to the standards. And much of this publication is based on the "Anglo American Cataloguing Rules (second edition)."
Hope this helps. Bonne chance.
