What is it about?

This Protocol, adopted under the auspices of UNESCO, completes the Agreement on the Importation of Educational, Scientific and Cultural Materials (New York, 22 November 1950) and extends the scope of application of the 1950 Agreement on further materials of an educational, scientific and cultural character. The Protocol applies to the following: works of art and collectors’ pieces of an educational, scientific or cultural character, visual and auditory materials, scientific instruments or apparatus, articles for the blind and other handicapped persons, sports equipment, musical instruments or equipment, material and machines used for the production of books, publications and documents.

Why is it relevant?

In signing the 1976 Agreement, a State privileges the import of educational, scientific and cultural materials for easier and cheaper accessibility by its population. It also facilitates the distribution of these items originating within its territory to be distributed abroad. The most important innovation of the present Protocol is the adjustment of the 1950 Agreement to new developments in the technical, economical and political field

Additional Information

Only Member States to the 1950 Agreement may become a Party to the present Protocol.
