Request for restitution received
Are you working in a museum, local authority, provincial authority or another public-sector entity, or a company or a private party? And have you received a request for restitution of a cultural good that is administered by you? Then first establish who the present possessor is. This might be you yourself, or possibly the cultural good is in possession of the Dutch State or of another non-State third party.
You can find out the current possessor of an object by consulting your own database, or by seeking details of the cultural good in the databases of wo2.collectienederland.nl.
Depending on who the present possessor is, you should follow the steps set out below.
