The World Heritage Committee,

1. Accepts as "complete" all nominations listed as "complete" and "almost complete" in Table A of document WHC-02/CONF.202/10 Rev and agrees that they be examined at the 27th session of the Committee in 2003;

2. Accepts for examination at the 27th session of the Committee in June/July 2003, on an exceptional basis in view of the transitional period, the three nominations: Rock Shelters of Bhimbetka (India), Takht-e Soleyman (Iran), and Matobo Hills (Zimbabwe), which have been made complete following the deadline of 1 February 2002. (Consequently, the nomination of Rock Shelters of Bhimbetka, India, a site belonging to an underrepresented category, is by this action substituted for the nomination of Champaner-Pavagadh Archaeological Park, India, in Table A). In total, 28 nominations will be examined in 2003;
