Engineering, Environmental and Preservation
The Engineering, Environmental and Preservation (EEP) Committee deals with engineering, design, maintenance and conservation issues related to aids to navigation. The committee aims to develop and review related IALA documentation on issues such as optics, light and colour for aids to navigation, design and maintenance of related equipment, remote control and monitoring and environmental considerations. In addition, the work of committee will strengthen the role of IALA through further development of the certification process and promote international research and development on issues such as light measurement and conspicuity. The committee also provides guidance on the conservation and alternative use of traditional aids to navigation.
