Following a recent Archive Service Accreditation Panel, the following archive services have been awarded accreditation:

Archive Service Accreditation is the UK wide standard for archive services.  By attaining accreditation, archive services demonstrate that they meet the standard for collections management and access to collections, showing resilience and the ability to manage changing circumstances successfully.

All accredited archive services must apply again for accreditation six years after their initial award to retain their accredited status.  By achieving accreditation for a second time these archive services have demonstrated a commitment to continuing development of their service and the effective management of change.

  • Anglesey Archives
  • Berkshire Record Office
  • Devon Archives and Local Studies
  • History of Advertising Trust
  • Pembrokeshire Archives (moved to provisional award)
