  • London South Bank University Archives
  • Magdalen College School Archive
  • National Museums Liverpool: Maritime Archives and Library
  • Oldham Local Studies and Archives

At the same panel meeting, the following archive services were awarded Archive Service Accreditation for the second time:

  • Cumbria Archive Service
  • Exeter Cathedral Library and Archives

By retaining accreditation for a further period of up to six years, the archive services have shown that they have continued to meet the standard through effective planning, risk management and delivery of change.

Archive Service Accreditation is supported by a partnership of the Archives and Records Association (UK), Archives and Records Council Wales, National Records of Scotland, Public Record Office of Northern Ireland, Scottish Council on Archives, The National Archives, and the Welsh Government through its Museums, Archives and Libraries Wales division.
