Abstract (in English)

Ever since the Venice Charter of 1964, ICOMOS has developed a series of documents setting out best practice in different aspects of consultation. Once adopted, they provide guidance in formulating projects and yardsticks against which proposals can be measured. The most recent example is the Training Guidelines which were adopted at the ICOMOS General Assembly in Colombo in 1993. Another important subject, that of recording, was taken up by the Research and Recording Committee of ICOMOS UK and led to the production of the ICOMOS Guide to Recording Historic Buildings (Butterwort Architecture 1990). It was decided to follow this up by drafting Recording Guidelines which it is hoped may be endorsed at the next General Assembly in Sofia, in 1996. In much of the world where the importance of recording is not fully recognised, these guidelines, emphasising the need for recording and setting out the reasons, occasions, objectives, methods and content, will provide an important aid to better practice, while elsewhere they provide an occasion for reviewing policy and practice.
