A database of stolen works of art combines descriptions and pictures of around 48,216 items (as at 3 April 2016).
Direct access to the database was made available in 2009, enabling authorized users to check in real-time if an item is among the registered objects.

Certain types of data can be accessed openly by the general public:

  • The  most recent stolen works of art reported to INTERPOL;
  • Recovered works of art;
  • Works of art that have been recovered but remain  unclaimed by their owners;
  • Stolen Afghan items;
  • Stolen Iraqi items;
  • Stolen Syrian items.
