The National Office of Cultural Heritage (Kulturális Örökségvédelmi Hivatal, KÖH), which coordinates and supervises the protection for cultural goods in Hungary, laid off 75 employees in the course of the autumn of 2006. Most of the employees will continue working at the National Centre for Monument Restoration and Restoration (Állami Műemlékhelyreállítási és Restaurálási Központ, ÁMRK) which has been operating as a support institution of cultural heritage authorities since 1993 and will be operating in the form of a non-profit organisation in the future. The dismissals are likely to cause problems in the future given the increased number of historic monuments and archaeological excavations related to recent motorway constructions in the country, as well as the expansion of the tasks related to the authorisation of building licences, etc.
