The National Heritage Council of Namibia (NHC) is a government organization in Namibia responsible for historic preservation. It was created by the National Heritage Act of 2004,[1] which is an act "to provide for the protection and conservation of places and objects of heritage significance and the registration of such places and objects; to establish a National Heritage Council; to establish a National Heritage Register; and to provide for incidental matters".[2] It is managed by Rev S.M. April.

The organisation is the successor to the National Monuments Council an organisation set up under the National Monuments Act of South Africa which applied in Namibia during the period of South African rule and during the first fourteen years of independence.[3][4]

In 2007, the National Heritage Register was created as the central repository authorised by the 2004 act.[5]
