Managing and documenting any conservation work on particular objects, such as treatments to slow decay, repair damage or improve appearance.

Collections care and conservation - scope


This procedure is closely linked to Condition checking and technical assessment. Conservation interventions are usually the result of condition checks, and are often prompted by other procedures, such as managing a loan request. Conservation treatments will often be informed by scientific analysis of materials and other technical assessments. Conservators might also be involved in making bespoke supports or packaging for objects.
