European Inland ECDIS expert group

The objective of the European Inland ECDIS expert group is to develop and to maintain a harmonized European and Russian standard for Electronic Chart Display and Information Systems for Inland Navigation (Inland ECDIS) that is based on the standards of the International Hydrographic Organisation (IHO) for maritime Electronic Navigational Chart (ENC), the standards of the Inland ENC Harmonization Group (IEHG) for Inland ENC and the standards of the International Maritime Organisation (IMO) for maritime ECDIS. The standard is submitted to the European Commission and other interested international organisations (e.g. the Central Commission for Navigation on the Rhine, the Danube Commission, the UN/ECE) and national authorities for formalisation. The European Inland ECDIS expert group serves as independent international platform to ensure a harmonized development of the Inland ECDIS standard in the different international organisations. The European Inland ECDIS expert group is a combined government/non government technical group. For more information see http://www.ris.eu/library/expert_groups/ecdis
