Our working practices are guided by a series of policy documents designed to ensure that our work meets the highest standards of professional practice, in full compliance with relevant legislation. These policies have been put in place to protect the interests of our clients, staff and other stakeholders.
In particular we are bound by codes and standards of practice adopted and promoted by the following organisations:
- Chartered Institute for Archaeologists
- World Archaeological Congress
- Historic England
- Society for Museum Archaeologists
- Federation of Archaeological Managers and Employers
The policies of University College London
We also have a strong platform of guidance and policy adopted by UCL, as well as more specific policies tailored for departmental and local use. The following links identify key policy statements, but the list is not exhaustive.

ASE working manuals and recording systems
Our operations are also guided by a series of practice manuals.
These cover field and laboratory procedures embracing also quality
management. These procedural manuals are not available on-line, since a
thorough review of our recording systems is underway (2013 / 2014) in
the context of our new data management systems (ASEBASE), but can be
consulted individually on request.
