Cooperation with the Advisory Body
The Advisory Body advises the General Assembly of States Parties to the UNESCO-Convention in questions of a scientific or technical nature regarding the implementation of the "Rules concerning activities directed at underwater cultural heritage" (Annex of the Convention). It can be consulted for drafting operational guidelines compliant with the Rules and advises on practical questions of international cooperation, which are part of the Rules of the Convention (Art. 8-13). The members of the Advisory Body have currently appointed fifteen accredited NGOs for advice and cooperation.
