As a result of ongoing effects of COVID-19 on distribution infrastructure around the world, for safety reasons, the UKHO took the decision a few months ago to delay the publication of any non-essential ADMIRALTY Nautical Publications until further notice.

The UKHO have been continuously monitoring the situation ever since this decision was made.
In view of the progressively reduced effects of COVID-19 on the distribution network across the world, the UKHO are now in a position to start easing the restrictions on the dispatch of the paper publications.
They will publish a limited number of ADMIRALTY Nautical Publications in July 2020 and closely monitor the distribution network capacities. Information gathered during this period will help finalise the future plans to resume to a normal publications schedule as soon as it is possible.
