UK museums have been urged to show caution in their approach to a consultation launched by the government as part of its Red Tape Challenge to streamline the regulatory burden across a number of sectors.

In March, sports, heritage and gaming industry stakeholders were given the opportunity to "name and shame" the rules and regulations they believe are holding back growth.

However, the Museums Association (MA) has warned that the removal or alteration of certain legislation could have "unintended outcomes" for the UK's museums sector.

Among the regulations subject to the consultation is the Firearms (Museums) Order 1997, which permits museums to display items without the need for a firearms certificate.

MA director Mark Taylor said: "We would urge all of our members to make themselves aware of this initiative, and to respond if they feel it appropriate.

"While it is admirable that the government is seeking to cut excessive bureaucracy, we would urge caution when looking to change or remove legislation that may have wide-reaching consequences for museums across the UK."

The consultation closes on 31 May.
