Standards

In 2008, the East Riding Museums Service was awarded Accreditation by the Museums, Libraries and Archives Council for its standards of collection care. Responsibility for Accreditation now lies with the Arts Council, and further information on the scheme can be obtained by visiting the Accreditation page of the Arts Council website.

As part of the process of attaining Accreditation the museums are required to have a policy relating to the development of the collections. A copy of the latest policy document is available to download here.

Our collections are also documented to standards required by SPECTRUM, the UK Museum Collections Management Standard, maintained by the Collections Trust on behalf of UK museums.
