Protection of cultural objects on loan

The South Australian Museum is an approved institution under the Protection of Cultural Objects on Loan Scheme. The scheme is operated by the Australian Government's Department of Communications and the Arts. The scheme provides legal protection for cultural objects on loan from overseas lenders for temporary public exhibition in Australia.

It limits the circumstances in which lenders, exhibiting institutions, exhibition facilitators and people working for them can lose ownership, physical possession, custody or control of objects while on loan to an approved Australian institution. 

Under the Scheme approved institutions are required to publish provenance information relating to material which will be protected by the scheme's provisions
