The International Charter accepted by CINOA defines the mission of fine art dealers uncompromisingly as follows:
The fine art and antique dealer, member of CINOA participant organisation, is not considered to be a dealer only, but advisor as well, obliged to observe regulations set by his organisation. Due to the fact, that he is dealing with fine arts, he meets the culture missions. His relation with customers is based on personal confidence. He is obliged to inform professionally all customers and associates on an era of origin of the object, about artist, who created respective object and on current condition of the object.
