The General Conference of the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization, meeting in Paris from 4 November to 5 December 1958, at its tenth session,
Convinced that development of the international exchange of publications is essential to the free exchange of ideas and knowledge among the peoples of the world,
Considering the importance accorded to the international exchange of publications by the Constitution of the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization,
Being aware of the provisions for the exchange of official publications set forth in the Convention for the International Exchange of Official Documents, Scientific and Literary Publications and in the Convention for the Immediate Exchange of Official Journals, Public Parliamentary Annals and Documents, concluded in Brussels on 15 March 1886 and in various regional agreements for the exchange of publications,
Recognizing the need for a new international convention concerning the exchange of official publications and government documents between States,
Having before it proposals concerning the exchange of official publications and government documents between States constituting item 15.4.1 on the agenda of the session,
Having decided, at its ninth session, that these proposals should be made the subject of international regulation by way of an international convention,
Adopts, this third day of December 1958, the present Convention.

3.
The present Convention does not apply to confidential documents, circulars and other items which have not been made public.
Article 3. Bilateral Agreements
The Contracting States, whenever they deem it appropriate, shall enter into bilateral agreements for the purpose of implementing the present Convention and regulating matters of common concern arising out of its application.

In each Contracting State, the national exchange service or, where no such service exists, the central authority or authorities designated for the purpose, shall carry out the functions of exchange.
2.
The exchange authorities shall be responsible within each Contracting State for the implementation of the present Convention and of bilateral agreements as referred to in Article 3, whenever appropriate. Each Contracting State shall give its national exchange service or the central exchange authorities the powers required to obtain the material to be exchanged and sufficient financial means to carry out the functions of exchange.
