- Archaeology Data Service

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.
At the same panel the following archive services were awarded accreditation for the second time:
- Hertfordshire Archives and Local Studies
- National Monuments Record of Wales
- Orkney Archive
- Royal College of Nursing Library and Archive Service
- Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists
