Marzieh Torkamanian, head of the Handicraft Development Group, told Mehr News Agency that five international judges including two Iranians, and the other three from China, Oman and Kuwait, will meet at Tehran's Laleh Hotel.
According to UNESCO, the Seal of Excellence (known as SEAL) recognizes handicrafts products that are culturally authentic and have been manufactured in a socially-responsible manner with respect for the environment.
Torkamanian said the reviewing session today is UNESCO's seventh international program in which Iran is participating.
She added that 16 entries submitted by 18 West Asian Member States will also be reviewed during the Sunday contest.
In 2016, a total of 10 high-quality works by Iranian artisans, ranging from potteries to handwoven products, were granted the UNESCO Seal of Excellence.
