Guide to the Storage and Exhibition of Archival Materials
PD5454: 2012 now available
PD5454:2012 Guide to the Storage and Exhibition of Archival Materials is now available on the BSI online shop, and following a slight delay the old BS5454:2000 is now formally withdrawn and its status recorded accordingly.
Work towards a European standard on New Sites & Buildings Intended for the Storage & Use of Cultural Heritage Collections is steadily progressing. The UK contribution to this, and any related EN environmental standards under
TC346 Conservation of Cultural Heritage, will include PD5454:2012 and the new PAS 198 Specification for Managing Environmental Conditions for Cultural Collections. The likely timescale to the future EN standard(s) is about four years from now.
