ICOMOS - International Council on Monuments and Sites was established in 1965 at The Congress in Warsaw, as the result of The Second Congress of Architects and Specialists of Historic Buildings in 1964 along with the creation of The Venice Charter. ICOMOS work is based on its principles as well as a number of other conservation doctrines.

ICOMOS is an international non-governmental organisation, affiliated with UNESCO.

The main ICOMOS mission is to promote the application of theory, methodology, and to support the research of scientific techniques, which helps in preserving the architectural and archaeological heritage, such as: buildings and architectural ensembles, urban and historical layouts of the cities, garden schemes, archeological sites and cultural landscapes.
