From 2005, the society merged into The Institute of Conservation (Icon), along with The Care of Collections Forum, The Institute of Paper Conservation, The Photographic Materials Conservation Group and The United Kingdom Institute for Conservation of Historic and Artistic Works. Icon raises awareness of the cultural, social and economic value of caring for heritage and champions high standards of conservation. They represent nearly 3,000 individuals and organisations, most of whom are based in the UK. Members include professional conservators and others who share a commitment to improving understanding of and access to our cultural heritage. Events are run throughout the year, most of which are open to the public. The Scottish branch of Icon produces a journal three times a year.
