Suffolk Record Office’s deferment of application for accreditation

Outcome

Successful

Response

Archive Service Accreditation was launched in 2013, with an initial 4 year roll-out period for the programme.
An expected timetable was set for applications for Archive Service Accreditation by Places of Deposit.
These services could submit their applications throughout this period, with final submissions made by the end of 2017” as we moved on between 2013 and 2017
to recognise we’d have a lot of submissions in late 2017 that wouldn’t be assessed in year. It was only when we hadn’t had a submission by year end that we considered it an extension.
