Tehran, 18 October 2005 (CHN) -- The law enacted for preservation and maintenance of national heritage of Iran dates back to 1930 and no further studies were carried out since for its revision until recently when it was reviewed by the Cultural Heritage and Tourism Organization of Iran.
The revision is now complete and new proposals are submitted to the government to make up for the law disadvantages and to bring it up to date.
"The law for preservation and maintenance of National Heritage is the first law passed ever in the area of cultural heritage and tourism; despite 75 years passing from its enactment, it has not been comprehensively studied. Therefore, with its general revision approved, the legislative office of the Cultural Heritages and Tourism Organization of Iran will carry out expert studies on the law in a near future," says Omid Ghanami, head of legislative department of the Cultural Heritage and Tourism Organization of Iran.
Susan Cheraghchi, an expert of the department, believes that the significant legislation for maintenance of the national heritage has got old and it does not meet today's needs, calling for a comprehensive revision and provision of a new version.
