BS:5454, BS5454, BS 5454:2012 (previously :2000)

BS 5454:2012 makes recommendations for the storage and exhibition of archival documents

This standard makes recommendations that should apply to the long term, permanent storage of archival or archive documents. The temporary storage of archive documents in controlled access and their display in public places is also covered. The BS 5454:2012 (was BS5454: 2000) standards suggestions apply to new buildings, whether purpose-built or adapted, and to existing buildings.

The suggestions in BS 5454:2012 mainly concern traditional materials, i.e. paper documents, although some guidance on more modern media is given in clause 11. This guidance is intended for the storage of modern media in general-purpose repositories, and further specialist advice may also be required.
