It is aimed at organisations that hold archive collections – whatever form they may take – and covers both private and public sector archives.
The scheme gives organisations access to a UK-wide standard, which they can use to review and develop their policies, plans and procedures. It identifies strengths and provides a framework to improve weaker areas.
This encourages organisations to develop and improve the services they offer, to provide the best possible experience for visitors, researchers and other users.
