Recording when objects leave the buildings you are responsible for and pass out of your direct care.

This is a primary procedure. Accredited UK museums must meet the Spectrum standard set out below. The suggested procedure is one way to achieve the standard, but it is just a suggestion.

Object exit - scope


Use this procedure to recording when objects leave your museum for whatever reason. By ‘museum’ we include any off-site stores that are under your control. This can be as simple as an enquirer collecting an object they left for identification, in which case you might just need a further signature on the relevant object entry form to confirm safe handover.

Object exit - suggested procedure


This suggested procedure shows how you might meet the Spectrum standard for Object exit. It is presented in two formats: text and workflow diagram. They are meant to be starting points for you to adapt to the needs of your own museum.
