Please notify us if you discover or suspect:
- New dangers to navigation
- Changes in aids to navigation
- Errors in any navigational publication.
The Mariner's Handbook (NP 100) Chapter 8 contains details of the information you’ll need to send. If practicable you should also contact the originating hydrographic office when navigating on IMO-approved non-UKHO nautical charts. Please also comply with national and international law when forwarding such reports.
If giving the information on paper please use either the version below or that included in NP100. NP100 will be updated with these later versions at the next edition.
