Accreditation award

The panel may decide to award Provisionally Accredited status to those services which are close to meeting all the requirements of the standard. This is awarded on the understanding that this status stands for up to two years before a new full application will be required. The panel will specify a deadline for a full application in each case.

Applicants receive a copy of the assessment report sent to the panel which highlights the strengths of their application and suggests future development priorities for the service.

All applicants will receive an indication as to whether or not they are accredited within three months of submitting their applications. Formal notification will follow the decision of the Archive Service Accreditation Panel at their next meeting.
