Inscription on the national tentative list
Only the States (States parties to the convention) can propose properties to UNESCO for inscription on the World Heritage List. For this purpose, the World Heritage Committee asks every State to send a tentative list of the properties they wish to propose for inscription in the years to come; inscription on the national tentative list is therefore a prerequisite.
of the application
The application is presented to the national Committee, which assesses its admissibility and submits it to UNESCO. UNESCO renders a decision 18 months later at the earliest, following an appraisal. This technical evaluation is performed by ICOMOS (International Council for monuments and sites) for cultural properties or IUCN (International union for the conservation of nature) for natural properties.
However, the World Heritage Committee makes the final decision.
The world heritage committee consists of representatives from 21 of the state parties to the convention, whose term of office is for 4 years.Current Committee Members : Algeria, Cambodia, Colombia, Estonia, Ethiopia, France, Germany, India, Iraq, Japan, Malaysia, Mali, Mexico, Qatar, the Russia Federation, Senegal, Serbia, South Africa, Switzerland, Thailand and the United Arab Emirates.
