Summary/Abstract: The immovable cultural heritage that has been inherited from the past to the present has been subjected to various demolitions since the day it was first built. Carrying out maintenance and repair is a must for continuity of these structures’ existence and their transfer to future generations. Today, however, these repairs have been transformed from renewal into destruction of the historical, aesthetic and original conditions of the building. Pre-protection should be provided without the need for repair of historical buildings. With this study it is aimed that the preventive conservation practices in the international arena to be role model in Turkey also. The preventive protection is an interdisciplinary method that uses indirect measures and actions to prevent and minimize future degradation or loss of cultural heritage. With this method, cultural heritage will be periodically inspected by the non-profit organization to intervene immediately in the degradation process, thus greater damage will be prevented and additional costs will be avoided. Three- process system can be recommended for preventive protection in Turkey. First, preparation phase; filling in detailed damage determination form of monuments’ current situations and setting up security levels from one to five of each structural element that may be damaged. Second, monitoring phase; determining the monitoring interval according to the damage status and the degree of rarity of the works and monitoring the changes in the damage status at regular intervals. Third and the last one is the intervention phase which is developing and implementing an immediate response system by identifying the structural elements at the first level of danger.
