Concerned about the general status of altarpieces known as "retablos," a group of historical heritage professionals from several countries of North America,South America, and Europe met in Seville, Spain, from May 12 to 16, 2002. After examining a number of issues related to altarpieces, they proposed a series of recommendations to the various individuals and organizations involved in the management and intervention of altarpieces. These recommendations take an integral, methodological approach to the conservation of these cultural assets.

The series of principles known as the Document on Retablos, contribute toward establishing a necessary and indispensable basic methodology, in order to halt or prevent the dangers of drastic interventions or inadequate, arbitrary policies. These principles are meant to encourage feasible, sustainable interventions, so that this built heritage may be handed down to future generations.
