SR / OF : Marine Litter

Last updated by Keiran MILLARD Comments (1)


Proposal: Revised technical guidelines to make explicit that marine litter is in the scope of SR and OF

Description: There is a lack of clarity as to which Annex data on marine litter belongs to.  It was agreed that as this was a physical characterisitic of the marine and environment (including the intertidal area) it belonged to either SR or OF depending on the nature of the data.  Direct obeservations of marine litter are in OF.  Sea areas defined according to marine litter are in SR


Revision Impact: MINOR.  This amendment will only require a change to the TG concerning the descriptive scope of SR and OF.  There is no change to the IR or data models.  Marine litter is already present in SR Code Lists
