The Minister of Forestry, Fisheries, and the Environment (“the Minister”) published the amended Format and Procedure for Nomination of World Heritage Sites in the Republic of South Africa in terms of section 6(1) and (4) of the WHCA.
The Procedure provides guidance to anyone who intends to propose properties for World Heritage status to UNESCO through the Department and covers key requirements for both the tentative listing and nomination process for inscription. A need has however been identified to strengthen this Document for subsequent submissions of all future World Heritage nominations, including those that are currently on the tentative list.
