The Curators Committee of the American Association of Museums (CurCom) first developed A Code of Ethics for Curators in 1983 and revised the document in 1996. Recognizing that museums and museum work change over time and regularly present new concerns and challenges, CurCom established a work group in 2006 to review and update the Code of Ethics.
