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.
Accreditation enables museums and governing bodies to assess their current performance, and it supports them in planning and developing their services.
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 is the English language version of the Accreditation standard, published 3 October 2011 (web version, suitable for printing).
