In accordance with § 306(e)(2) of the Convention on Cultural Property Implementation Act (5 U.S.C. 2601 et seq.) (“the Act”), the Assistant Secretary of State for Educational and Cultural Affairs calls a meeting of the Cultural Property Advisory Committee (“the Committee”). The Act describes the Committee's responsibilities. A portion of this meeting will be closed to the public pursuant to 5 U.S.C. 552b(c)(9)(B) and 19 U.S.C. 2605.

Meeting Agenda: During the closed session the Committee will review the proposal to extend the cultural property agreement with El Salvador and Department of State staff will also brief the Committee on the threats to cultural property in Yemen. During the open session the Committee will hear public comments on El Salvador.

Open Session Participation: The Committee will hold an open session of the meeting to receive oral public comments on the El Salvador cultural property agreement on Tuesday, July 23, 2019, from 1:30 p.m. to approximately 2:30 p.m. (EDT). We have provided specific instructions on how to participate or observe the open session at http://culturalheritage.state.gov.

You do not need to register to observe the open session. You do not have to submit written comments to make an oral comment in the open session. But if you do wish to speak, you must request to be scheduled by July 17, 2019, via email (culprop@state.gov) in order to be assigned a slot. Please submit your name and organizational affiliation in this request. The open session will start with a brief presentation by the Committee, after which you should be prepared to answer questions on any written statements you may have submitted. Finally, you may provide additional oral comments for up to five (5) minutes per participant. Due to time constraints, it may not be possible to accommodate all who wish to speak.

Written Comments: If you do not wish to participate in the open session but still wish to make your views known, you may submit written comments for the Committee's consideration. Submit non-privileged and non-confidential information (within the meaning of 19 U.S.C. 2605(i)(1)) regarding the proposed extension for El Salvador using the Regulations.gov website (listed in the “COMMENTS” section above) not later than July 8, 2019, at 11:59 p.m. (EDT). For comments that contain privileged or confidential information (within the meaning of 19 U.S.C. 2605(i)(1)), please send comments to: U.S. Department of State, Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs—Cultural Heritage Center, SA-5 Floor 5, 2200 C St. NW, Washington, DC 20522-0505. In all cases, your written comments should relate specifically to the determinations specified in the Act at 19 U.S.C. 2602(a)(1). We request that any party soliciting or aggregating written comments received from other persons for submission to the Department inform those persons that the Department will not edit their comments to remove any identifying or contact information and that they therefore should not include any such information in their comments that they do not want publicly disclosed. Written comments submitted in electronic form are not private. We will post the comments at http://www.regulations .gov. Because written comments cannot be edited to remove any personally identifying or contact information, we caution against including any such information in an electronic submission without appropriate permission to disclose that information (including trade secrets and commercial or financial information that are privileged or confidential within the meaning of 19 U.S.C. 2605(i)(1)).
