OMC Working Group on "Mobility of Collections"


The OMC working group on Mobility of Collections was an “Open Method of Coordination” Committee set up by the EU Commission in 2009. It produced a report (.pdf) for the Commission in June 2010, covering the main areas of collections mobility. They are:

·        Government or State indemnity schemes and shared liability agreements
·       
Immunity from Seizure legislation
·       
Long term loans
·       
Exchanges of experts 
·       
Prevention of theft and of illicit trafficking in cultural goods

The report has been considered by the Culture Council at its meeting in September 2010.

More information can be found on the website of the European Commission.
