The International Hydrographic Organization (IHO) is an intergovernmental consultative and technical organization that was established in 1921 to support safety of navigation and the protection of the marine environment. Standard S-5 was developed to cater for competence of hydrographic surveyors, tagged 'Standards of Competence for Hydrographic Surveyors' by FIG/IHO/ICA so that individual surveyors can be trained, assessed and qualified based on an internationally accepted program. Distinctions were made between academic/full recognition, as well as the survey techniques relating to GPS, multi-beam sonar systems and the ECDIS. The development of S-8, Standards of Competence for Nautical Cartographers was initiated in 2000 by FIG/IHO. The ICA was invited to join the committee in 2001 and based on the joint efforts by the FIG/IHO/ICA, the first edition of this standard, focusing on nautical charting cartography, was later published.
