Disposal toolkit: guidance for museums considering disposal

This resource relates to the Accreditation Standard 2.1 Satisfactory arrangement for the ownership of collections.

‘The museum must take responsibility for all the collections it manages. It must be able to provide information on the size of the collections and the proportion of the collections owned by and on loan to it. Any risks relating to collections on loan to the museum should be dealt with through forward planning.’

In conjunction with Arts Council England, CyMAL (now MALD), Museums Galleries Scotland and the Northern Ireland Museums Council, the Museums Association (MA) revised the Disposal Toolkit in March 2014, to provide updated practical guidance for museums considering disposal.
