Accreditation Resources

The Accreditation Scheme sets nationally agreed standards for museums in the UK. There are currently just under 1,800 museums participating in the scheme, demonstrating their commitment to managing collections effectively for the enjoyment and benefit of users.

The scheme is administered by Arts Council England in partnership with CyMAL: Museum, Archives, Libraries Wales; Museums Galleries Scotland and the Northern Ireland Museum Council.

This page hosts resources developed by our Technical Accreditation Adviser. They are to be used in conjunction with resources and guidance documents provided by Arts Council England, not as standalone documents. If you have any questions about them or cannot find something specific you are looking for advice on please contact us here.
