‘Your museum must have a care and conservation policy approved by your governing body.
It should show how the collection care and conservation activities of your museum link to your statement of core purpose. It should meet ethical commitments and legal requirements.
This policy may be a separate care and conservation policy or statement or may be part of a wider collections management framework, care and conservation plan, or in your forward or business plan.’
(Accreditation standard, November 2018)
This resource from South West Museum Development Programme has been developed to guide museums through the process of developing a collections care and conservation policy.
This standard looks at specifications for location, construction and modification of buildings or rooms intended for the storage or use of heritage collections.
