It should be noted that we regularly check that the parts presented are not wanted. We use the INTERPOL database or we call on the French police service, the OCBC (Central Office for the Fight against Trafficking in Cultural Goods) We remind you that in case of identification of a stolen property , we must warn the legitimate owner of the property and at the same time the department of the Ministry of Culture and Communication to which the property belongs.

In case you have any doubts about an item in your possession, we strongly advise you to check the INTERPOL database yourself. As an individual, as in the case of a professional, you can request access. You will get the codes in the days following the request.
