The MA has acted as the champion and guardian of UK museum ethics since the first Codes of Practice and Conduct were published in 1977.

We produce the Code of Ethics and oversee the Ethics Committee, which develops and promotes the understanding of ethical principles, practice and issues within the museum community.
