Arts Council England To Review Museum Accreditation Scheme

Arts Council England announced this week that they will be undertaking a light touch review of certain aspects of the Museum Accreditation scheme in 2017. The scheme, which launched in 1988, helps museums secure long-term public access to sustainable collections by promoting shared standards in how they are run, how they manage their collections and the experiences of users. To allow Arts Council England to focus on the review, there will be a revision of the Accreditation submission schedule in England for 2017.

This includes prioritising: new applications, responses to museums experiencing significant change, provisional Accreditation reviews and those who have already applied. Museums in England due to reapply for Accreditation in 2017, will now remain part of the scheme for an additional 12 months. These museums will then reapply in 2018. This will not affect any applications to Arts Council England as a National Portfolio Organisation. Reviewing the Museum Accreditation scheme and how it will affect your museum
