FIG/IHO/ICA INTERNATIONAL BOARD ON STANDARDS OF COMPETENCE FOR HYDROGRAPHIC SURVEYORS AND NAUTICAL CARTOGRAPHERS (IBSC)

Chair: Mr Ron FURNESS (ICA)
Vice-Chair 1: Capt Nickolás ROSCHER (IHO)
Vice-Chair 2: Mr Sobri SYAWIE (FIG)
Secretary: Assistant Director Leonel MANTEIGAS (IHO Secretariat)

 

The IBSC (The Board) acknowledges that these are challenging times due to the COVID-19 pandemic and encourages all institutions to prioritize the well-being of staff and students as they manage their particular circumstances to deal with disruptions to their normal teaching strategies for their recognized programme(s). The Board recognizes that teaching delivery strategies will likely need to be changed as institutions implement essential changes to comply with official directions from authorities. The Board requests that any modified teaching strategies seek to maintain the appropriate level of the applicable Standard and asks that significant changes be referred to the Board for its consideration of the need for guidance or assistance with continuing recognition. This acknowledgement should not be construed as the Board seeking to override national or local official directions.

Objectives

Review syllabi of programmes and individual recognition schemes from education and training institutions, maintain IBSC publications, provide guidance to education and training institutions and support the IHO for the establishment of new hydrographic programmes where regional training capacity does not exist.

Members

The IBSC shall be composed of members of known competence in the civil, governmental or educational sectors of hydrographic surveying and nautical cartography, selected to provide as wide as possible a spectrum of knowledge and experience in educational practices, hydrography and nautical cartography, from different geographical areas. The IBSC shall have up to ten members, four provided by FIG, four provided by IHO and two provided by ICA.
