Subject: Institutional policies on the use of permanent inks

Institutional policies on the use of permanent inks

From: Anne Maheux <anne.maheux<-a>
Date: Sunday, September 14, 2014
I would like to solicit the archival conservation community for
information on the development of policies on the use of permanent
inks, particularly for the signing of prestigious government
documents. Can anyone share such a policy, or provide any
information on inks that have been recently tested and can be
considered "permanent"?  There have been attempts over the years to
compile such information, but I have not come across any
publications, papers, etc.  Any help would be most appreciated; I
would prefer not to replicate any previous efforts on this subject!
