IEC 63173-1:2021 specifies an S-100 compliant product specification for route plan intended for exchange of information. It specifies the content, structure, and metadata needed for creating fully S-100 compliant route plan information and its portrayal within an S-100-based application. The IHO manages all numbers for S-100 compliant product specifications and has assigned S-421 for this route plan IEC standard.
This document specifies only a data format for the route plan exchange. This document does not specify a data format of vessel monitoring and logging information. This information can be provided by other mechanisms or be specified in other standards.
The format of the route plan exchange includes some limited vessel static information. When more static information is required, it can be obtained by other methods such as AIS.
