The Standard and Arts Council Guidance

Arts Council England took over the administration of the Accreditation scheme when the Museums Libraries and Archives Council closed in 2011. It is a minimum standards scheme, open to any public museum, designed not only to provide a benchmark of professional practice but also a framework for improvement.
