Conditions and Requirements for the Export of Art from China

by swisscham in Consulting, Legal, Services, Tax

China’s traditional and fine art command an important part of the country’s rich heritage. Since ancient times, Chinese society has cherished its excellence in the arts. The exportation of traditional and fine art from China are protected by different regulations and relevant restrictions. The Law of the PeopleÕs Republic of China on Protection of Cultural Relics of 1982, which was recently amended at the Third Meeting of the Standing Committee of the Twelfth National PeopleÕs Congress on June 29, 2013, governs the conservation and exportation of traditional art in China. Such exports are, of course, prohibited but can be authorized upon State Council approval. Chapter VI of the law also states that cultural relics to be taken out of the country shall be subject to examination and verification by the relevant authorities designated by the administrative department in charge of cultural relics under the State Council. Exhibitions of traditional art must also follow government procedures.
