Sec. 2051. Implementation of the Agreement; executive designation

and duty of Federal agencies

-STATUTE-

The President of the United States is authorized to designate a

Federal agency or agencies which shall be responsible for carrying

out the provisions of the Agreement for Facilitating the

International Circulation of Visual and Auditory Materials of an

Educational, Scientific, and Cultural Character and a related

protocol of signature, opened for signature at Lake Success on July

15, 1949 (hereinafter in this chapter referred to as the

''Agreement''). It shall be the duty of the Federal agency or

agencies so designated to take appropriate measures for the

carrying out of the provisions of the Agreement including the

issuance of regulations. In carrying out this section, such

Federal agency or agencies may not consider visual or auditory

material to fail to qualify as being of international educational

character -

(1) because it advocates a particular position or viewpoint,

whether or not it presents or acknowledges opposing viewpoints;

(2) because it might lend itself to misinterpretation, or to

misrepresentation of the United States or other countries, or

their people or institutions;

(3) because it is not representative, authentic, or accurate or

does not represent the current state of factual knowledge of a

subject or aspect of a subject unless the material contains

widespread and gross misstatements of fact;

(4) because it does not augment international understanding and

goodwill, unless its primary purpose or effect is not to instruct

or inform through the development of a subject or an aspect of a

subject and its content is not such as to maintain, increase, or

diffuse knowledge; or

(5) because in the opinion of the agency the material is

propaganda.

Such Federal agency or agencies may not label as propaganda any

material that receives a certificate of international educational

character under this section and the Agreement.
