CINOA is a federation of art and antique dealer associations.
CINOA has 32 member dealer associations in 22 countries. We only accept leading national or international dealer trade associations as members. Individual dealers are affiliated through their membership to one or more of our 32 member art and antique dealer associations. We do not accept individual dealers.
Membership of CINOA is based on associations which bind their dealer members to adhere to reputable standards of quality, expertise and integrity. Dealers cover a wide array of specialties from antiquities to contemporary art.
Members must have a strong code of ethics and adhere to the CINOA Code of Ethics & Charter.
Affiliated dealers often display the CINOA logo as support of the organization and CINOA Code of Ethics.
Associate members are associations, federations or institutions in related activities that share common legislative or business goals with CINOA. This is only for major organisations that are working internationally.
Associate membership is for the Secretariat or head office, and does not apply to their individual members or affiliated dealers.
Associate Members must have a strong code of ethics that is in line with the CINOA Code of Ethics & Charter. Associate members have voting rights exclusively on trade issues.
More specific details on membership are stated in the CINOA Articles of Association.
Membership must be approved unanimously by the CINOA General Assembly.
