Deaccessioning in Ireland

Ireland has no legislation nor national guideline on deaccessioning or disposal.

The praxis, though, is quite common since all museums that are accredited are obliged to have an written deaccessioning and disposal policy in their collections management plans. The responsibility of these instruments lies on the individual museum level, instead of a national level.
