The wreck of the Schiedam is listed as a protected shipwreck by the Historic England agency, which means that divers need a permit to visit it.

Milburn and Gibbins from Cornwall Maritime Archaeology are keeping watch on the wreck for the agency, and have permission to recover any artifacts they feel might be at risk.
