Cultural Heritage Surveillance

The Superintendence of Cultural Heritage is responsible for the scientific investigations related to cultural heritage assets found both on land and at sea. The Superintendence also regulates archaeological evaluations and monitoring of development works in order to guide on planning decisions and to safeguard cultural sites throughout ongoing works. Onsite surveillance of development is carried out by qualified and competent persons who are registered on the Superintendence of Cultural Heritage Services Register. The Superintendence keeps full records of the archaeological documentation resulting from these investigations. Further details on the procedures and standards required from the Superintendence are published on the ‘Operating Procedures and Standards for Archaeology Services’ (OPSAS) document. OPSAS document can be viewed from the below link.
