Selection criteria for UN World Heritage Sites: Until the end of 2004, there were six criteria for cultural heritage and four criteria for natural heritage. In 2005, this was modified so that there is only one set of ten criteria. Nominated sites must be of outstanding universal value and meet at least one of the ten criteria. A. Cultural criteria: I. to represent a masterpiece of human creative genius II. to exhibit an important interchange of human values, over a span of time or within a cultural area of the world, on developments in architecture or technology, monumental arts, town-planning or landscape design III. to bear a unique or at least exceptional testimony to a cultural tradition or to a civilization which is living or which has disappeared IV. to be an outstanding example of a type of building, architectural or technological ensemble or landscape which illustrates a significant stage s in human history V. to be an outstanding example of a traditional human settlement, land-use, or sea-use which is representative of a culture or cultures , or human interaction with the environment especially when it has become vulnerable under the impact of irreversible change VI. to be directly or tangibly associated with events or living traditions, with ideas, or with beliefs, with artistic and literary works of outstanding universal significance.
