Tour of Germany

I'm intrigued as to what, and who, decides which races achieve world tour status whilst others remain "off the list".

i've just been looking at the results of the Tour of Germany and it's a really strong field, so obviously it's highly regarded by riders and teams alike,  so why is it not a front line race?..same applied for the Tour of the Alps and several other races...What are the rules and deciding factors on a races status?
