We help your museum to comply with regulations.  FOR. FREE. ALWAYS.

The “Proposal for a Regulation of the European Parliament and of the Council on the import of cultural goods - SWD(2017) 263 final” has recommended the adoption of systems that could guarantee the traceability of imported cultural goods.  Not only instruments coming to or leaving the EU should be traced.  The “Communication from the Commission to the Council on the protection of national treasures possessing artistic, historic or archaeological value: needs arising from the abolition of frontiers in 1992 - COM/89/594 final”  has also expressed the need for tracing them.  Other international regulations, like UNESCO’s “Convention on the Means of Prohibiting and Preventing the Illicit Import, Export and Transfer of Ownership of Cultural Property” have suggested the creation of a registry that could help to preserve the historical legacy.

If your collection is not in the European Union, we can also comply with your local regulations.  Please contact us if you wish to use eCauda elsewhere.

Why for free? No hidden agenda.  At eCauda we are fully convinced that culture and education are the best drivers to help society to reach its maximum potential, and we want to help!
