ICOMOS

ICOMOS, acronym of International Council on Monuments and Sites, is an international non-governmental organisation of heritage professionals engaged in the conservation of places of cultural value and dedicated to the conservation of the world's historic monuments and sites. ICOMOS was founded in 1965 following the adoption of the International Charter for the Conservation and Restoration of Monuments and Sites – generally referred to as The Venice Charter (1964).

Through its 110 national committees worldwide and its 28 specialised scientific committees, ICOMOS provides a forum for professional dialogue.

ICOMOS is the official advisor to UNESCO on matters related to cultural World Heritage Sites.
