Recommendation on Measures to Promote the Integrated Conservation of Historic Complexes Composed of Immovable and Movable Property (1998)

Movable cultural heritage includes objects that people create or collect and forms an important part of a nation's identity. These objects are known as cultural property and can be artistic, technological, historical or natural in origin. There is increasing trade and exchange of cultural property between nations. This exchange can enhance international appreciation of cultural diversity, but it can also lead to the loss of significant aspects of a nation's cultural heritage.

Preface:  The Recommendation on Measures to Promote the Integrated Conservation of Historic Complexes Composed of Immovable and Movable Property (1998) was adopted by the Council of Europe, Committee of Ministers,  17 March, 1998.

The Recommendation for the Protection of Movable Cultural Property was adopted by The General Conference of UNESCO (20th Session), Paris, 24 Oct.-28 Nov., 1978. This Recommendation addresses the need to extend the protection of the built heritage by addressing historic complexes, that is, buildings and structures along with their contents. The document asks member states to identify and classify historic complexes (public and private) and to put in place legislation to provide for their protection. It also recommends sanctions to ensure that objects not be separated from their built environment and that incentives, such as tax relief, subsidies, and low-interest loans, be enacted to encourage preservation.
