Deaccessioning in Cyprus

Deaccessioning and disposal seems to be of minor issue in Cyprus.

In the Antiquities Law of 2006 (amended in 2012), there is one article that states objects can be disposed of when not needed by the Cyprus Museum, or any district or local museum (§29). No further details are given. No guidelines or other tools have been developed.
