Code of Ethics

ICOM Code of Ethics for museums

Ethics and museum professionals’ exemplary practices are essential for ICOM.

ICOM Code of Ethics for museums
was adopted in 1986 and revised in 2004. It establishes the values and principles shared by ICOM and the international museum community. It is a reference tool translated to 38 languages and it sets minimum standards of professional practice and performance for museums and their staff.

By joining ICOM, each member commits to respect this code.

Standing Committees

The ICOM Standing Committees and Working Groups are approached by the President and the Executive Board to publish studies and reports about the essential aspects of the association and subjects that are important for the global museum community. They are part of ICOM and they propose new ideas and deeper insights in order to improve the structures of the organisation and to further the development of the museum world.

While the Standing Committees accompany the association and advise its bodies regularly, the Working Groups deal with more specific themes and for a shorter term.

Both Standing Committees and Working Groups unite ICOM’s international experts to assess reforms and rules that contribute to the efficiency of the management of ICOM.
