Abstract (in English)

The International Committee for the Conservation of the Industrial Heritage (TICCIH) has some 450 individual members in more than 50 countries. It is a special adviser to ICOMOS on potential industrial world heritage sites. TICCIH produced the Nizhny Tagil Charter on the Industrial Heritage in 2003. In 2011 a shorter text inspired by the Charter was adopted by the 17th ICOMOS General Assembly in Paris as the Joint ICOMOS – TICCIH Dublin Principles for the Conservation of Industrial Heritage Sites, Structures, Areas and Landscapes. TICCIH has produced four World Heritage Studies in association with ICOMOS and part of the joint action plan being finalised to execute the TICCIH-ICOMOS Memorandum of Understanding, itemises further joint working in this and other areas of the industrial heritage. It may seem logical, as at present being discussed within ICOMOS, to create a new ISC on the Industrial Heritage for effective working on this important topic. However, it would seem counter-productive if ICOMOS does not continue to support the available flow of support and knowledge available from TICCIH for the World Heritage process and for the industrial heritage generally. The new joint TICCIH-ICOMOS Action Plan ensures the continued effective flow of the expert advice on the industrial heritage to ICOMOS. This paper was presented during the 2nd International Symposium on Cultural Heritage and Legal Issues, organized in October 2015 by ICOMOS Slovenia with the support of the Council of Europe, the Institute for the Protection of Cultural heritage in Slovenia, the Slovenian Ministry of Culture and TICCIH Slovenia.
