E.C.C.O.’s work focuses on the role of Conservator-Restorers in the safeguarding of cultural heritage and their relationship with other professions.
Quality derives from an ethical approach that ensures a consistently high standard of work and its results, achieved in an accountable manner.
Every aspect of our work relies on open communication towards our member organisations, affiliated organisations, European governmental bodies and the broader community. Advocacy of our goals can only be effective when we have a high level of visibility.
A Conservator-Restorer with recognized competence is entitled to work anywhere throughout Europe. Greater mobility is achieved via the mutual recognition of qualifications.
The impact of legislation and European directives on the Conservator-Restorers’ profession, including the legal obligations, has specific significance for cultural heritage and the practice of Conservation-Restoration.
Guidance means a proactive approach in giving advice and in developing tools and recommendations to the benefit of E.C.C.O.’s member organisations.
