A guideline describes the measures you can take to correctly preserve your own archive and collection(s). The guidelines are bundled in various clusters. However, you can also consult and use them separately. For each guideline there is a first tool or action plan that will help you to implement the guideline.

If your arts organisation receives operating subsidies on the basis of Kunstendecreet, there are a number of guidelines included in the basic preservation package; these are indicated by ✓. Here, the 'comply or explain' principle is followed: you can deviate from the guideline as long as your action is substantiated. You will find more information about the basic guidelines and 'comply or explain' in the section 'About TRACKS'.
