The Baltic Region Heritage Committee – BRHC (former Monitoring Group on Cultural Heritage in the Baltic Sea States) was established in 1998 and is composed by nominated representatives of state authorities in charge of national heritage management in ten countries.

The activities focus both on intrinsic value of cultural heritage and its sustainable management. The BRHC promotes the potential of cultural heritage as a strategic resource for developing the Baltic Sea Region.
