Preventive Conservation

The Preventive Conservation Working Group deals with all measures and actions aimed at avoiding and minimizing future deterioration or loss. These actions are carried out within the context or on the surroundings of an item, but more often a group of items, whatever their age and condition. These measures and actions are indirect – they do not interfere with the materials and structures of the items. They do not modify their appearance.
