TICCIH's goals are to promote international cooperation of individuals and institutions in preserving, conserving, investigating, documenting, researching, interpreting and advancing education of the industrial heritage in the world.


TICCIH was formally established in 1987. It is organised through national associations and through international thematic sections of members with shared interests.


TICCIH represents industrial heritage at an international level and provides expert advice to ICOMOS, according to an agreement signed between TICCIH and ICOMOS in 2014, to help assess the importance of sites which are considered for the UNESCO World Heritage List.
