Candidature dossier

The basis

The "Rhaetian Railway in the Albula/Bernina Landscape" candidature dossier is based on the conditions set out by UNESCO. In 2005, these determined the guidelines according to which nomination would be considered.  The UNESCO guidelines are intended to ensure that nominations around the world are handled in a similar manner.

As a result, the committees responsible are able to base their decision on documents that correspond to clearly defined standards in terms of content and formulation. These guidelines also specify the core and buffer zones that are to be excluded from the world heritage sites.
