West Sussex Record Office achieves ‘Archive Service Accreditation’

The Record Office has for many years been the repository and the processing area for our analogue film collection and our work across West Sussex has been under-pinned by the Record Office and its staff.

Archive Service Accreditation defines good practice and agreed standards for archive services across the UK, thereby encouraging and supporting the development of the archive service.

It allows archive services to participate in a scheme supporting the ongoing development of their service against a nationally agreed standard.

Archive Service Accreditation also provides assurance that standards are being maintained by archive services that have been approved as Places of Deposit .
