UKHO Nautical Publications Edition Schedule

United Kingdom Hydrographic Office 

The United Kingdom Hydrographic Office (UKHO) is responsible for providing crucial hydrographic and geospatial data to mariners and maritime organizations across the world. With over 250 nautical publications and 3,500 nautical charts, mariners heavily depend on ADMIRALTY’s maritime products and services for their planning, navigation and security-related needs. In fact, the UKHO provides the widest official coverage of the world's busiest international shipping routes and ports. They also support the Maritime and Coastguard Agency’s (MCA) obligations to the Safety of Life at Sea (SOLAS) Convention by ensuring marine data of the UK coastal waters is accurate and kept up to date.

 

Every vessel should carry the charts and publications required for its safe operation and navigation. SOLAS Chapter V, Regulation 19.2.1.4 states that all SOLAS class ships irrespective of size shall have nautical charts and nautical publications to plan and display the ship's route for the intended voyage and to plot and monitor positions throughout the voyage.

 

Please note that in the case of publications listed below, only those parts of the publication which are relevant to a ship's voyage and operation need be carried.  In accordance with SOLAS Chapter V, Regulation 27, all nautical publications necessary for the intended voyage shall be adequate and up to date.The following table provides carriage guidance on international regulatory materials. It also provides guidance on appropriate listed publications in the vessel's SMS manual or relevant extracts from which that may be included in the SMS manual.
