The Database permits users to consult the national legislation protecting cultural heritageprovided by UNESCO Member States on the UNESCO web site:
To better fight illicit trafficking in cultural property, and to facilitate its return andrestitution, it is very useful to have current national cultural heritage legislation easilyavailable on the web. Law-makers, lawyers, police and customs officers, art andantiquities dealers, especially in the international art market, and private individuals needto consult the laws of a given State with regard to, among other things, importation orexportation and ownership of cultural property. UNESCO Member States have beenasked to submit, in electronic format, all current legislation dealing with cultural heritage(material, moveable, intangible, underwater…). The Database provides quickinternational availability of this legislation in a centralized venue to offer betterprotection to cultural property. In addition to the legislation, contact information andweb links, if made available, are also provided for each State.

Its being fast and user-friendly, with search patterns and word searchesthat facilitate navigation through legislation;
