Summary

Not long ago a public register of moveable and immovable goods of Mexican cultural heritage was implemented. This system has been changed and modified to improve it.

In general terms, the "Sistema Único de Registro Público de Monumentos y Zonas Arqueológicas e Históricas (SURPMZAH)" consists of an identification, description and finally the assignment of an official number to the piece to assist in the recovery of the object if stolen.

I believe the system has unsuccessfully transformed and ask the following question: Does the "Sistema Único de Registro Público de Monumentos y Zonas Arqueológicas e Históricos actually work?

I suggest some ideas:

• Should the collections be verified frequently

• Dissemination between the investigators and general public

• The Register should be realized by each of the INAH delegations of Mexican Republic.
