IALA - Work Programme

IALA online work programme

Work Programme


The work programme serves as a foundation for the committees’ work plans, outlining assigned tasks. It is important to note that the list does not include updating other documents (e.g. manuals and model courses), liaising with related bodies, or events such as workshops and seminars, which will continue to be addressed by the committees.

The work programme aims to identify work items with outcomes and priorities based on IALA’s strategic vision, current drivers and trends, and the IALA position document on the development of Marine Aids to Navigation.

Committee Task plan


The committee work plan outlines the committee's tasks for a given work period. Oversight for this plan falls under the committee chairs and vice-chairs. The plan displays the titles, descriptions, and scheduled sessions for each task. Updates are made post-committee sessions. The work plan also acts as a reference for the committee members, ensuring alignment in activities and priorities. Periodic reviews of the plan ensure its relevance and adaptability to changing committee needs.

Task register


The task register serves as the record for task statuses. Task leaders hold the responsibility for updating this document. It encompasses the task's purpose, objectives, and anticipated outcomes. Additionally, the register facilitates efficient communication among team members, ensuring clarity in the goal of the tasks. Regular updates of the task register are encouraged to maintain its accuracy and to monitor the progression of each task.
