Abstract (in English)

Australia is in the process of enacting national heritage legislation that is a considerable departure from the Australian Heritage Commission Act of 1975. Under the new regime, places entered on to the National Heritage List (NHL) will be the focus of the Commonwealth’s heritage management role. The concept of a National Heritage List has been strongly influenced by World Heritage listing, but in this instance refers to places assessed to be of ‘outstanding’ national significance. Conservation of these places will be guided by a set of ‘National Heritage management principles’ given force through management and conservation plans. The National Heritage management principles are in the process of being drafted with public and professional participation being sought. This paper is a comparison of the proposed principles with those embodied in the charters of the scientific committees of ICOMOS, in particular the International Committee for Archaeological Heritage Management (ICHAM) and the International Committee for Cultural Tourism.
