European Confederation of Conservator-restorers' associations (E.C.C.O.) - Recent news

Update: On the classification of the Cultural Heritage sector within NACE

5.3.2020 This document has just been published in the International Journal of Public Heritage. 27.5.2019 Conservation-Restoration is not recognised as an economic activity by NACE (Nomenclature statistique des Activités économiques dans la Communauté Européenne; Statistical Classification of Economic Activities in the European Community). This means that no statistical data exists on the profession; in economic terms, the activity remains hidden. The profession also remains unidentified in ISCO (International Standard Classification of Occupations). 

This document proposes a re-structuring of the NACE tax codes that would enable Conservation-Restoration to be identified as a unique economic activity alongside all other heritage activities and demonstrate the contribution the activity makes to the European economy.
