THE RETURN OF CULTURAL OBJECTS (REVOCATION) REGULATIONS 2018

On 23rd July, the UK Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport said that these Regulations are being laid before parliament and will revoke the domestic regulations which implement EU Directive 2014/60, relating to the return of cultural objects unlawfully removed from the territory of EU Member States, so avoiding a one-sided obligation upon the UK to return cultural objects, in the event of ‘no deal’ with the EU upon exit.  Since 1993, the EU has had legislation providing for the return of cultural objects that have been unlawfully removed from the territory of another Member State.  The Directive aims to reconcile the principle of the free movement of goods with the protection of national treasures.
