Renewal of Cultural Property Advisory Committee Charter

SUMMARY: The Charter of the Department of State's Cultural Property 
Advisory Committee (CPAC) has been renewed for an additional two years.

    The Charter of the Cultural Property Advisory Committee is being 
renewed for a two-year period. The Committee was established by the 
Convention on Cultural Property Implementation Act of 1983, 19 U.S.C. 
2601 et seq. It reviews requests from other countries seeking U.S. 
import restrictions on archaeological or ethnological material the 
pillage of which places a country's cultural heritage in jeopardy. The 
Committee makes findings and recommendations to the Secretary of State, 
who, on behalf of the President, determines whether to impose the 
import restrictions. The membership of the Committee consists of 
private sector experts in archaeology, anthropology, or ethnology; 
experts in the international sale of cultural property; and 
representatives of museums and of the general public.
