The Archive Service Accreditation programme partners have released the following statement in response to the coronavirus (Covid-19) pandemic. Please note: no new applications will be considered at the panel meeting due in November 2020 but the programme is open for scheduled reviews and reapplications where services are in a position to submit these.
For the latest advice and support regarding the current situation, please visit our coronavirus update webpage.
Archive Service Accreditation is the UK standard for archive services. Standards schemes and frameworks help archives to manage and improve their efficiency and effectiveness through external validation, and by identifying good practice. Read our leaflet for an overview of Archive Service Accreditation.
Archive Service Accreditation also enables The National Archives to fulfil our statutory functions relating to Places of Deposit.
