Abstract
    The fourth edition of the “IHO standards for hydrographic surveys, special publication no. 44” became available in 1998. Its principal aim is to specify minimum standards for hydrographic surveys. In 2004, the IHO decided to reconvene an S44 working group, which started its work in 2005. It aims to submit a draft new edition by the end of 2006. This paper informs about current S44 standards, it expresses some considerations about changes, provides an update on the status of the revision, and invites the hydrographic community to express their opinion about the current edition.
