· Survey and diagnosis of the “national network of archaeological reserves” from museums having archaeological collections;

· Processing of Enquiries from the “Archaeological Reserves Work Group”;

· Survey and diagnosis of the current situation (location and administrative records) of archaeological resources originating from the implementation of archaeological works;

· Development of a strategy for the deposit and transfer of archaeological collections;

· Standardisation of criteria and procedures for the deposit and transfer of archaeological collections;

· Standardisation of criteria for accrediting archaeological reserves;

· Standardisation of criteria for organising archaeological collection deposits.
