Voted APPROVE with Comments on ISO NP 16687 Impact Assessment for Museums


The proposed International Standard “Impact assessment for museums” is planned as a follow-up to ISO 18641 “Information and documentation – International museum statistics” and ISO 21246 “Information and documentation – Key indicators for museums”. Its purpose is to define and describe methods for assessing and measuring the impact of museums on individuals and on society.


ASIST is of the opinion that the proper course of action would be to modify and combine the existing standards in this area rather than develop an an entirely new standard
