Regulations for the federal provinces

Guided by the 1998 Art Restitution Act, which is aimed specifically at federal collections, several provinces and municipalities have adopted provincial laws or regulations on the restitution of art assets confiscated during the Nazi period. They do not come under the jurisdiction of the Art Restitution Advisory Board, although the Board is sometimes consulted in an advisory capacity.
