1 Treasure Trove Consultation Updating the Code of Practice

2 Why do we need this consultation? The Code of Practice was first published in 2008 to clarify the procedures relating to reporting and allocation of finds. Based on experience and feedback to Treasure Trove Unit and the Advisory Panel there is a need to reassess the content to help further enhance the code and what it stands for.

3 Who can respond to the consultation?
