It is based on Article 29 of the Convention (Link alla pagina del WH: and on further specifications contained in the UNESCO Operational Guidelines.

Every six years, all World Heritage Sites are required to submit a report to UNESCO, based on an online questionnaire, to enable the World Heritage Committee to assess its conditions and, where appropriate, to decide on the need to take specific measures to address current challenges and problems.

The Periodic Reporting is divided into two parts: the first, focused on the application of the Convention by the States Parties, is reserved to National Focal Points (Link pagina Centro di Documentazione.
