The World Heritage Committee,
- Takes note of the list of all nominations received by the World Heritage Centre between 28 January 2002 and 1 February 2003 as presented in document WHC-03/6 EXT.COM/7 Rev;
- Decides that the 32 new nominations determined by the World Heritage Centre to be complete by 1 February 2003 and four additional nominations for which the Centre had asked for guidance from the Committee be transmitted to the Advisory Bodies for evaluation.
- Requests the World Heritage Centre to assist States Parties who have submitted incomplete nominations to make them complete for submission in future years.
- Requests the World Heritage Centre to further develop, for inclusion in the revised Operational Guidelines (see decision 6 EXT. COM 5), an accurate description of the process and the list of requirements to be used by the World Heritage Centre to determine whether a nomination is complete. This revision should build upon text proposed in Paragraph II.E.1 and Annex VI of the 3rd draft annotated revised Operational Guidelines presented in document WHC-03/6 EXT.COM/ INF.5B.
