The Dublin Principles

Principles of best-practice for the conservation of industrial heritage

In recognition of the lack of an Industrial Heritage Charter, ICOMOS (the International Committee on Monuments and Sites) working with TICCIH (the International Committee for the Conservation of the Industrial Heritage), developed principles of best-practice for the conservation of industrial heritage.

The Dublin Principles for the Conservation of Industrial Heritage Sites, Structures, Areas and Landscapes were the result of this collaboration. Their adoption by ICOMOS International at their General Assembly in Paris in December 2011 was a major step in the recognition of the significance of industrial heritage, and the need for its conservation, protection and enhancement.
