Procedure for Other Collections
One of the Restitutions Committee’s tasks is to issue a binding opinion about restitution applications that concern items of cultural value that are not in the Dutch National Art Collection. Items of cultural value whose former owners lost them as a consequence of the Nazi regime may now be in the possession of parties other than the Dutch State, for example a provincial or local authority institution, a foundation or a private individual. The Restitutions Committee can issue a binding opinion about claims to such items of cultural value at the request of the former owner and the current holder.
The procedure followed by the Committee is described in the Regulations.
