Museums are periodically required to provide evidence that they continue to comply with the Accreditation Standard through the returns process. Existing participants will be invited to provide a return through a staged rollout that began on 13 December 2011 and will continue on a cyclical basis.
The rollout timetable is detailed in the documents below:
Guidance documents to support you in your return can be found on the Guidance documents page.
Applicants can use the Word version of the form as a support document in the planning stages of their online application. You can cut and paste text from the word document directly to the online application form.
Applicants unable to access the online application form can download a pdf form to submit a written return. Any applicants considering submitting a written application should consult with an Accreditation advisor before completing the form.
Should you wish to complete an application or return on a paper version, please contact your relevant assessing organisation.
Should you wish to provide an application or return in the Welsh language, please contact CyMAL: Museums Archives and Libraries Wales (a division of the Welsh Government).
