The directory lists full members of NZCCM who agree to abide by our Code of Ethics.

When choosing a conservator to carry out treatment, it is appropriate to ask the conservator about his/her training, experience and professional affiliation, and to ask to see examples of the conservator’s work.

Discuss with the conservator what work is to be done and clarify what results can be expected. The conservator should provide a written treatment proposal and an estimate of cost and time. Treatment proposals may be subject to change, but a client should expect to be consulted before the conservator proceeds with a different treatment.

The essential factor in conservation is that any work undertaken should be the minimum necessary to ensure preservation and safe use.
