ANU manages its heritage places and their values in accordance with the Environment Protection and Biodiversity Conservation Act 1999 (EPBC Act) and industry best practice standard including the Burra Charter (developed by the International Council on Monuments and Sites (ICOMOS), Australia). In implementing the requirements of the legislation and guidelines, ANU developed a set of Heritage Management Principles which are applicable to all work on heritage places and in the day to day management of the heritage values of ANU. These guidelines were developed as part of the ANU Acton Campus Master Plan and work in unison with the Commonwealth Heritage Management Principles, the EPBC Act and the Burra Charter.
