Subject: UNESCO Accord

I haven't encountered a UNESCO Accord on Books but there is one called
the Agreement for Fascilitating the International Circulation of
Visual and Auditory Materials of an Educational, Scientific and Cultural
Character (3rd General Session of UNESCO: Beirut, Lebanon; 1948).
Materials certified under this agreement are permitted duty-free entry
into Canada under Canadian Tariff Item 69615-1. Such materials must be
accompanied by a certificate issued by the exporting country. In the
USA there's someone at the State Department who issues the certificates.
It used to be the USIA Information Officer. In Canada the NFB is/was
responsible for Canadian materials being exported under Orders in Council
P.C. 127 and P.C. 1964-832.
