Decision 26 BUR XII.106-107
Spišský Hrad and its Associated Cultural Monuments (Slovakia)

XII.106 The information provided by the State Party stated that the effects of quarrying on the conservation of Spissky Hrad and its Associated Cultural Monuments are negligible. Furthermore, the report pointed out that the quarrying company was elaborating a new extraction and re-cultivation plan, in co-operation with the National Administration for Nature Preservation, in order to meet the criteria for nature and landscape preservation.

XII.107 The Bureau took note of the information provided by the State Party and requested the Slovakian authorities to provide a more detailed report on the situation.  This report should include a copy of the new extraction and re-cultivation plan and an impact assessment, by 1 October 2002, for examination by the 27th session of the Bureau in April 2003.
