Iranian National Center for Ocean Data (INCOD)

The Iranian National Center for Ocean Data (INCOD) achieved the accreditation of “Quality Management Framework” of IODE Programme

 

The Iranian National Center for Ocean Data (INCOD) of Iranian National Institute for Atmospheric Science (INIOAS) achieved the accreditation of “Quality Management Framework” of International Oceanographic Data and Information Exchange Programme (IODE) in Twenty-fourth Session of the IOC Committee on IODE (IODE-XXIV) in 2017.

The "International Oceanographic Data and Information Exchange" (IODE) programme of the "Intergovernmental Oceanographic Commission" (IOC) of UNESCO was established in 1961. Its purpose is to enhance marine research, exploitation and development, by facilitating the exchange of oceanographic data and information between participating Member States, and by meeting the needs of users for data and information products.

The IODE Quality Management Framework (IODE-QMF) provides overall strategy, advice and guidance for National Oceanographic Data Centers (NODCs) to design and implement quality management systems (QMS) for the successful delivery of oceanographic and related data, products and services.

The mission of a NODC is to provide access and stewardship for the national resource of oceanographic data. This effort requires the gathering, quality control, processing, summarization, dissemination, and preservation of data generated by national and international agencies.

So far, through more than 80 NODCs in the world, only Belgium, China, Iran and France have been awarded the credentials from the IODE programme.
