Feedback Request on Intent to Withdraw Supply and Maintenance of ADMIRALTY Small Craft Folios
The UK Hydrographic Office has recently announced that it is proposing to withdrawing the supply and maintenance of ADMIRALTY Small Craft Folios. However users, your members and/or customers will continue to be supported via a digital solution.
The intention to retire the ADMIRALTY Small Craft Folios is in response to the changing requirements of users and to increase the frequency of updates.
As an alternative to the ADMIRALTY Small Craft Folios, established suppliers in the small craft market will continue to be able to license data from the UKHO to serve those who do not wish to operate digitally.
The Institute is therefore canvassing its SCG Members for their views on this proposal to enable feedback to be provided to the UKHO.
As with previous recent consultation exercises, time for a response is limited and feedback from members is therefore sought via the online form below, which you are asked to complete by 31st October.
Update (8th October 2019):
The UKHO has issued a press release concerning its Small Craft Folios, entitled ‘UKHO seeks views from membership bodies and end-users on proposals to better serve the small craft leisure market.’ : please click here for the press release.
