The Call was approved at the 1st joint session of the Steering Body to the EMEP and the Working Group on Effects (Geneva, 14-18th September 2015) and then launched in October 2015 and closed in June 2017.

Six Parties to the Convention (Croatia, Germany, Italy, Norway, Sweden and Switzerland) participated in the call by providing qualitative and quantitative data (materials, level of pollutants, meteo-climatic parameters) for in total twenty-one unique cultural objects located at UNESCO World Cultural Heritage sites. A wide range of materials (natural stone, artificial stone, copper, bronze, glass and others) and environmental conditions is represented in the selected sites.

More detailed information can be found in Report No 80. Call for Data “Inventory and condition of stock of materials at UNESCO World Cultural Heritage sites, 2015-2017”. Part I. Status Report), September 2017, see ICP Materials reports

The next steps of the activities are oriented towards the assessment of expected damage of the materials constituting the artifacts due to air pollution by using dose-response functions established by ICP Materials (2018) and assessment of cost of damage caused by deterioration of the materials constituting the artifacts due to air pollution (2019).
