Welcome to the Maritime Resource Name (MRN) portal site. This page provides up-to-date information about Maritime Resource Names and their usage within the maritime industry. IALA welcomes comments and contributions by emailing us directly at the technical manager, firstname.lastname@example.org .
What is it?
Maritime Resource Name (MRN) is a naming scheme that can uniquely identify any maritime resource on a global scale. By maritime resource, it means anything that has an identity of some kind. This could be organizations, employees, a person, a physical or a virtual object, for instance, an electronic document, a buoy, a ship, a mariner, a nautical chart, or an electronic service (e.g., “today’s weather report for the Oresund Strait”). Not all resources are “retrievable” in an electronic sense; For example, human beings, corporations, and buoys. However, they can still be considered a resource.
Assignment of Organization IDs is mainly reserved for maritime standards development organizations, research projects, scientific societies, and similar bodies. The detailed procedure is defined in the IALA Guideline G1164.
If you wish to apply for an Organization ID please fill out a form similar to this and send it to email@example.com. We will then get back to you with more details.
