Current Organization and Tasks

Since its promulgation on December 31, 1986 and implementation on January 16, 1987, the original National Palace Museum Organization Regulation has been in effect for over two decades. In conjunction with the government's organizational downsizing principle and in response to the requirement of operational development, the Regulation was renamed National Palace Museum Organization Act, with the entire content revised. Promulgated pursuant to Executive Order Hua-Zong-Yi-Yi-Tze No. 09700003961, dated January 16, 2008, the new law places National Palace Museum under the supervision of Executive Yuan for the purpose of "organizing, safeguarding and exhibiting antiquities and artifacts of the original Beijing National Palace Museum and Central Museum Preparatory Bureau; and enhancing collection, study, promotion of ancient Chinese artifacts in order to bolster the social education functions of the National Palace Museum."
