UK Hydrographic Office announces proposals for a replacement digital solution

The UK Hydrographic Office has announced that it is proposing to withdraw the supply and maintenance of ADMIRALTY Small Craft Folios.

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 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 with previous recent consultation exercises, time for a response is limited and feedback is sought via an online form, which will need to be completed by 8th October 2019.

The RYA is preparing its response to the consultation and would urge all recreational boaters and other leisure mariners responsible for safety of life at sea, to complete the survey at https://rin.org.uk/page/SurveyAdmiraltySmallCraftFolios.
