Criteria Modifications

Following the inscription of a World Heritage property, the local management team may discover additional Outstanding Universal Value which was not recognized at the time of inscription. Such discovery or recognition may lead to a desire to modify or expand the criteria according to which the property was listed.

think heritage! offers you advice for such criteria modification to your World Heritage property and outlines the procedure necessary to receive the World Heritage Committee approval. Our team is also prepared to compile the documentation required to apply for criteria modifications. The documentation required for an additional criterion is comparable to the documentation required for a nomination dossier. However it is focused on the state of conservation, attributes and management of OUV under this criterion in conjunction with the acknowledged criteria.
