The beauty and cultural significance of art and antiques transcends borders.

At CINOA, we stand as guardians of this global heritage, protecting the industry from various challenges and threats including illicit trade, restrictive policies, and cultural property disputes.

Since its founding in 1935, CINOA has advocated for fair trade practices, ethical conduct, and the preservation of cultural heritage. We collaborate with museums, cultural institutions, and governments to create a sustainable and responsible art market.

Advocacy requires a voice, and there is a place for yours in the CINOA community, whatever your role in the industry. By signing petitions and participating in policy consultations, you can help shape the future of the art and antique trade.

CINOA members are held to standards of quality, expertise and integrity as underscored in the CINOA Code of Ethics. For more information, please see our About page.
