The UK Archive Service Accreditation Committee has announced the first accredited archive services:

  • Cumbria Archive Service
  • Exeter Cathedral Library and Archives
  • Media Archive of Central England
  • Network Rail Corporate Archive
  • Tyne and Wear Archives
  • Worcestershire Archive and Archaeology Service

Archive Service Accreditation is the new quality standard for archives services across the UK, developed in partnership with the archives sector and its stakeholders.

Achieving accredited status demonstrates that an archive service has achieved clearly defined national standards relating to management and resourcing; the care of its unique collections and what the service offers to its entire range of users.

Accredited archive services are also recognised for their capacity to seize opportunities which bring benefits across the service and mitigate potential risks to ensure the sustainability of the service.
