Law and RD underwater heritage

On April 4th 2014, the law regarding the protection of underwater cultural heritage was adopted, followed by the adoption of the Royal Decree of April 25th 2014. The texts of the thematic chapter ‘Maritime and coastal heritage’ and Chapter 3 ‘marine science – policy interface’ were therefore adapted based on the new rules of law.
