Relationship with the IODE
In 2003 (through Recommendation IODE-XVII.3) the IODE Committee recommended that the body should be merged with the IODE's GE-TADE (IODE Group of Experts on Technical Aspects of Data Exchange) and become the JCOMM/IODE Expert Team on Data Management Practices (ETDMP). This is an extract from that Recommendation:
The IOC Assembly, at its Twenty-Second Session (24 June - 2 July 2003), through Resolution IOC-XXII-7 decided to merge the IODE Group of Experts on Technical Aspects of Data Exchange and the JCOMM Expert Team on Data Management Practices.
