Australia assumes role of primary charting authority for Solomon Islands

Defence and Solomon Islands’ Ministry of Infrastructure Development signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) concerning hydrography cooperation, formally assigning the Primary Charting Authority (PCA) role for Solomon Islands to Australia.
The PCA role allows Australia to support Solomon Islands to provide accurate and up-to-date nautical charts and publications to meet their obligations under the International Convention for the Safety of Life at Sea.
