Overview of New New York Deaccessioning Rules

Although the new rules were approved last year, it’s always good to have a concise overview.
New rules on deaccessioning were approved by the New York Board of Regents on May 17, 2011, and went into effect on June 8, 2011. The NY Board of Regents oversees most museums in the state that were formed after 1889. If a museum violates these rules, it risks losing its charter.
