Register with Us

The UK Registrars Group is a non-profit association set up in 1979. It provides a forum for exchanging ideas and expertise between registrars, collection managers and other museum professionals in the United Kingdom, Europe and worldwide.

The group strives to establish and promote standards of good professional practice through publications and seminars and to support national and international standards in relevant fields of work.

Particular emphasis is given to documentation and records, physical care, loans & exhibition logistics and cultural sector legislation. The Group also seeks to provide advocacy and representations in relevant consultations and sectoral developments, where required by its membership.

Individual membership is open to all those involved in the care, management, interpretation and display of collections in museums, art galleries, heritage centres or any other similar organisations. In addition, corporate membership is available to those companies which supply services to the museum and gallery sector in general.

The website is our main form of communication with members, non-members, other museum professionals and non-museum workers alike. News, events and job adverts are also sent via our news bulletin, which goes out monthly by email to all members.

We aim to share our work with others and are happy for you to download and use our information.

Charlotte Dew @TEGnetwork, David Packer @UKregistrars, Lyn Stevens @NtlMuseumsScot and Carol Warner, Government Indemnity Scheme, are the panellists for the @CollectionTrust live Q&A on loans, tomorrow, Wednesday, 11am on YouTube. All the details are here:

Wonderful to see funding for these collections projects in response to Covid-19 crisis.
