The European Quality Principles

The EU Quality Principles document stems from the work of an expert group assembled by ICOMOS, under the mandate of the European Commission and in the framework of the flagship EU Initiative of the European Year of Cultural Heritage 2018, “Cherishing heritage: developing quality standards for EU-funded projects that have the potential to impact on cultural heritage”.

The main objective of the document is to provide guidance on quality principles for all stakeholders directly or indirectly engaged in EU-funded interventions that could impact on cultural heritage, mainly built heritage and cultural landscapes. Stakeholders cover European institutions, managing authorities, international organisations, civil society and local communities, the private sector, and experts.

Thanks to ICOMOS National Committees, the European Quality Principles are also available in the following languages:

To date, 31 Focal Points for Quality Principles have been appointed by ICOMOS European National Committees and they meet on a regular basis: the last meeting was on 3 May at the headquarters of ICOMOS, with the aim of discussing how to actively and effectively promote Quality Principles.
