2. At its 27th session (June/July 2003, Paris), the Committee examined the state of conservation of the eighteen natural and fourteen cultural properties. The Committee’s decisions and recommendations with regard to each site were transmitted by the Centre to the concerned States Parties.

On the basis of these regular reviews, the Committee shall decide, in consultation with the State Party concerned whether:


  1. additional measures are required to conserve the property;

  2. to delete the property from the List of World Heritage in Danger if the property is no longer under threat;

  3. to consider the deletion of the property from both the List of World Heritage in Danger and the World Heritage List if the property has deteriorated to the extent that it has lost those characteristics which determined its inclusion in the World Heritage List, in accordance with the procedure set out in paragraphs 46 to 56 above.”
