They enrich the social, cultural and economic life of Indigenous communities and provide opportunities for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples to generate income, gain employment, develop professional skills and participate in the nation’s economy, while maintaining a continued connection to country and culture.

Australia's movable cultural heritage is protected by legislation which controls the export of important cultural heritage objects, so that our irreplaceable heritage is not lost to the nation forever. Not all cultural heritage objects can be exported. Objects subject to export control are of exceptional importance in the development of Australian society and culture. Two categories of material are controlled by the Protection of Movable Cultural Heritage Act 1986 (the PMCH Act) and include: Class A objects and Class B objects.
