MOWCAP Guidelines on nomination to the MOWCAP register are consistent with the Memory of the World: General Guidelines to Safeguard Documentary Heritage (2002). They have been adapted to be appropriate for the regional context.
The Memory of the World Register Companion provides additional information on nominating documentary heritage to international registers.
The international guidelines are currently being reviewed. When the review is completed the MOWCAP guidelines will be reviewed to ensure they are consistent with Memory of the World international guidelines.
