ICOMOS to Expedite Restoration Charter


24 August 2005



If Iran’s Cultural Heritage and Tourism Organization delays signing the accord on compiling a charter on the restoration of historical monuments, the International Council on Monuments and Sites (ICOMOS) will undertake the project itself with the assistance of cultural heritage lovers.

Announcing this, an Iranian member of the council, Kourosh Rashidi told CHN that the Iranian chapter of ICOMOS considers drawing up the charter as one of its recognized duties and will seriously pursue the matter.

“Therefore if the organization responsible for Iranian cultural heritage affairs does not cooperate with ICOMOS in this respect and further delays the implementation of the project, the council will intervene to draw up the charter with the assistance of non-governmental organizations and cultural heritage enthusiasts,“ he noted.

Rashidi urged the ICHTO as the major institute handling the country’s cultural heritage and tourism issues to pay more attention to the subject.

Although all the conditions for signing the contract between the ICHTO and ICOMOS have been prepared and all officials agree that compiling a restoration charter is currently one of the priorities, the project is still in limbo, he complained.

The official further said that ICOMOS has estimated the cost of the project at 900 million rials, which if provided, will not only coordinate the regulations with international and indigenous standards but will also enable peripheral activities such as holding national seminar on restoration of movable and immovable objects and publication of up-dated information in the field to take place.
