That is why there is concern in the USA because they fear a new tragedy after that. Titan case. The US government is also trying to halt salvage work by citing federal law and an international convention that designates the site as a “sacred site”.
What the law stipulates
The fight in the US District Court in Norfolk, Virginia, which is overseeing the recovery of the Titanic, is based on federal law and an agreement with Britain over the Titanic. Among the government’s concerns is the possible destruction of artifacts (and human remains, ed.) that may still exist. The company said it wanted to photograph the entire wreck. RMST said it will recover artifacts from the wreckage field and “may recover freestanding objects within the wreckage”. These could include items from inside the Marconi Room, which contains the ship’s radio—Marconi’s wireless telegraph—which relays the increasingly frantic distress signals from the Titanic after the ship’s collision with an iceberg. “At this time, the company has no plans to cut off the wreckage or exfoliate any part of the wreckage,” RMST said. The company said it will work with the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, the US agency that represents the public interest in the wreck. But RMST said it had no plans to seek a permit.
