Safety of Life at Sea Convention(SOLAS)
  • Chapter V, Regulation 2
  • 2 Nautical chart or nautical publication is a
    special-purpose map or book, or a specially
    compiled database from which such a map or book
    is derived, that is issued officially by or on
    the authority of a Government, authorized
    Hydrographic Office or other relevant government
    institution and is designed to meet the
    requirements of marine navigation.
  • Refer to appropriate resolutions and
    recommendations of the International Hydrographic
    Organization concerning the authority and
    responsibilities of coastal States in the
    provision of charting in accordance with
    regulation 9.

Safety of Life at Sea Convention(SOLAS)
  • Chapter V, Regulation 9
  • Contracting Governments undertake to arrange for
    the collection and compilation of hydrographic
    data and the publication, dissemination and
    keeping up to date of all nautical information
    necessary for safe navigation.

Chapter V, Regulation 9 (cont)
  • Contracting Governments undertake to ensure the
    greatest possible uniformity in charts and
    nautical publications and to take into account
    whenever possible, relevant international
    resolutions and recommendations
  • Refer to the appropriate resolutions and

IHO - Objectives
  • The Objectives of the IHO are
  • the coordination of the activities of national
    hydrographic offices
  • the greatest possible uniformity of nautical
    charts and documents
  • the adoption of reliable and efficient methods
    for hydrographic surveys
  • the development of related sciences and
    techniques

New CHRIS WGs
  • Reactivation of Data Quality WG
  • Consideration of application of ISO quality
    standards and principles
  • Marine Spatial Data Infrastructure WG
  • Scoping study
  • Hydrography and Cartography in Inland Waters WG
  • Scoping study

2009 Transition to a two - Committee Structure
  • Hydrographic Specifications and Standards
    Committee (HSSC)
  • All technical programs, technical WGs, ..
  • Inter Regional Coordination Committee (IRCC)
  • All inter-regional and capacity building programs

17
IHO Decision Making
  • Committees and WGs only provide proposals
  • Unless decided at a Conference ( General
    Assembly)
  • ALL Member States are consulted
  • At least a 50 positive vote is required
    (currently 38 votes)
  • Not responding, is in effect NO
  • This is normal procedure for many
    inter-governmental organizations
