The International Seabed Authority (ISA) today launched its new website to provide its Member States and the wider ISA community with an improved user experience.

The site has been redeveloped with a new look and feel, and helpful navigation features so users can easily find up to date information about ISA, along with its programmes and activities.

“I am delighted to officially announce the launch of the new ISA website,” said ISA Secretary-General Mr. Michael W. Lodge. “I want to thank our great creative team who have worked so hard to get the website ready for launch,” he added. “We wanted to make the website dynamic, easier to navigate and more user-friendly and I think they have done an amazing job.”

A complete archive of all ISA documents and publications is accessible on the site, as well as a catalog of multi-media resources, including photos, videos, and podcasts.

The website also provides a portal to access DeepData – the global database for deep-sea environmental and geological data – and the resources of the Satya N. Nandan library.

Up-to-date and easily accessible information about the ongoing work on the development of the deep-sea Mining Code is also available on the site as well as all official documents for the annual sessions.
