Abstract (in English)

This essay is about legal technique. It is more efficient to regulate protection of the cultural heritage by issuing more or less detailed decisions, or is it sufficient to issue rules in general wording? The choice of technique is not devoid of importance. With general rues the effect can be made much far-reaching, but the interpretation may be more contentious. Individual decisions demand much office work, but may in consultation with parties concerned result in good implementation. Some pros and cons are discussed here, illustrated by the Swedish heritage legislation, where general rules have a long standing.
