Systematic surveying of the UKs coastal waters is administered by the Maritime & Coastguard Agency (MCA) under the Civil Hydrography Programme, with technical oversight, data validation and onward charting undertaken by the UK Hydrographic Office. Under the programme, the MCA has issued a number of long-term commercial contracts to ensure accurate hydrographic information is gathered for updating the nations nautical charts and publications.

Routine re-surveys are undertaken in areas where the seabed itself is highly mobile. We analyse these surveys to identify changes that have occurred and apply updates to charts if necessary. We also assess whether the limits and survey frequency should be revised.
