Under the B component of ISMEP “Architectural Heritage Conservation Charter” which focuses on the basic principles of conservation and preservation, the process, the tools and the politics had been established. Charter studies emphasized the requirements of the area and revealed the necessity for the guidelines and regulations for the protection of cultural heritage. Workshops and symposium were organized to establish a “Guidelines for the Management of Earthquake Risks for Historical Structures” under scope of project Med-Art II.

During the workshops, the project team had the chance to come together with experts, representatives of institutions and individuals working in the area of protection and shared comprehensive information about the recent situation of the guideline through presentations as well as discussions.
Symposium aimed at the promotion of “The Guideline of Earthquake Risks Management for Historical Structures" for all the environments studying on conservation with international effectiveness.
