Many of the disasters that have struck Switzerland and other countries in recent years have extensively damaged or even destroyed cultural property. The greatest risk to buildings and collections of particular importance, no matter where they are in the world, are earthquakes, floods, fire damage, not to mention acts of vandalism and attacks perpetrated during armed conflicts. To prevent this, in Switzerland, one of the most important PCP measures is “safeguard documentation”. The articles in this issue illustrate some of the efforts undertaken in this regard in Switzerland and supported by the PCP service.
