The MOU with Colombia is Extended and Amended
The US and Colombia completed an exchange of diplomatic notes on March 1, 2011, effecting the extension for another five years of the Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) that imposes import restrictions on certain categories of pre-Columbian archaeological artifacts and ecclesiastical ethnological materials originating in Colombia. The extension becomes effective on March 15, 2011, and will be in force until 2016. This decision was in keeping with the recommendation of the Cultural Property Advisory Committee, which met in October to consider the proposal to extend the MOU. Article II has been revised. For further information, please see the Colombia Information page, and its links.
