Case Summary

A consent order settled charges that the American Institute for Conservation of Historic and Artistic Works adopted and enforced provisions in its rules of conduct that prohibited professional conservators to work for free or at reduced fees. The association agreed to remove all provisions from its Code of Ethics, and its Commentaries to the Guidelines for Practice that are inconsistent with the order. Professional conservators manage and preserve cultural objects (including historical scientific, religious, archaeological and artistic objects).
