The Register of Professional Archaeologists is a community of professional archaeologists. Our mission is to establish and adhere to standards and ethics that represent and adapt to the dynamic field of archaeology and to provide a resource for entities who rely on professional archaeology services.
The Register of Professional Archaeologists has joined the Archaeological Organizations of the World in releasing an important statement on the crisis in Ukraine.
"We express solidarity with the people of Ukraine and also with the many Russian and Belarussian scholars who maintain an independent, fact-based approach to understanding both current and past events."

The Register values on-going professional development, however, the proposal to require continuing education credits has been tabled by the Board of Directors due to the COVID-19 crisis.
ARCHAEOLOGICAL ETHICS DATABASE
The Archaeological Ethics Database is an ongoing project by the Register of Professional Archaeologists and the Chartered Institute for Archaeologists (CIfA).
One of the major goals of the Register of Professional Archaeologists is to provide and enforce the organization’s Code of Conduct (Code) and the Standards of Research Performance (Standards). The grievance hotline connects you directly to the Grievance Coordinator, avoiding office staff and intermediaries, for confidential consultation and information.
