The Hoi An Protocols For Best Conservation Practice in Asia (2005) are professional guidelines for assuring and preserving the authenticity of heritage sites in the context of the cultures of Asia.

The Protocols serve as an essential and practical resource for a large audience both public and private, from practitioners, governmental bodies, custodians to NGOs. They cover a wide range of topics and themes, including cultural significance and authenticity in an Asian context, concept and tools for the safeguarding of heritage sites from cultural landscapes, archaeological sites, underwater cultural heritage, historic urban landscapes to monuments and buildings.

The Hoi An Protocols were developed as a response to an increasing number of threats within the region linked to population growth, environmental degradation, rural-to-urban migration, urban redevelopment, industrialization and globalization forces.
