This research provides an assessment of museums’ views on 4 areas:
1 The existing status of individual Accreditation requirements
2 The perceived value of proposed Accreditation requirements
3 The ease of implementation of proposed Accreditation requirements
4 The level of training required to comply with proposed Accreditation requirements.
A number of comments made by survey respondents support the fact that Accreditation focuses attention on what needs to be done to get museums through challenging times (risk awareness / resource planning). HVM recommends that MLA and its successors work in partnership with existing support organisations to promote Accreditation as a standard which helps to ‘future-proof’ organisations.
