Professional Accreditation and the Conservation Register

Professional accreditation and the Conservation Register:
A promotional tour

In recognition of the fact that the Professional Accreditation of
Conservator-Restorers (PACR) scheme and the Conservation Register
complement each other (Accreditation is used by the Conservation
Register in its Criteria for Inclusion) a promotional tour has been
organised to raise awareness of the benefits of both schemes.

The event is free and is aimed at conservators from both the public
and private sectors across the three domains of museums, libraries
and archives, as well as those who are responsible for managing
collections and commissioning conservation work who would like to
find out more about both the Conservation Register and the PACR

The programme includes:

    *   short presentations on what's involved in PACR accreditation
        and the Conservation Register

    *   an accredited conservator's perspective on PACR

    *   a practice on the Register (or an organisation that has used
        the Register) offering their point of view

    *   an update on progress towards the establishment, in 2004, of
        a new unified professional body that will provide a focus
        for conservation and collection care activity across the
        whole of the UK.

    *   an optional tour to view the conservation studio of the
        hosting venue such as the Textile Conservation Centre and
        the Conservation Centre in Liverpool

The workshops will be presented in the English regions, Scotland,
Wales and Ireland, starting on October 30, 2003 in Exeter. They are
being supported by Resource, the Regional Agencies, Historic
Scotland, the National Museum and Gallery of Wales and Conservation
by Design.
