This draft document presents the current standards for ethical practice in the identification, conservation, management and celebration of intangible cultural heritage at place. It was developed by the ICOMOS International Committee on Intangible Cultural Heritage (ICICH) in 2019 by a team of members in Australia, Brazil, Chile, India, Mauritius, Mexico, and South Africa. The Charter builds on the draft ICICH Teemaneng Declaration first outlined in Kimberley, South Africa, in 2007, and developed further by members and other stakeholders until 2011. The Teemaneng Declaration itself was based on the Kimberley Declaration drafted at an international meeting held in South Africa in October 2003 and accepted that month by the 14th ICOMOS General Assembly at Victoria Falls, Zimbabwe.
