The Data Management Group (DMG) of the Meteorology Group (METG) conducted DMG/33 through series of 6 video conference calls from 15 to 17 June 2021. Participants from Algeria, Austria, Belgium, France, Romania, Russian Federation and the United Kingdom contributed to the following:

  • Implementation of providing and disseminating SIGMET on Tropical Cyclone that involves some Meteorological Watch Offices in the ICAO EUR Region in accordance to the EUR Air Navigation Plan;

  • Propose updates to the EUR Air Navigation Plan Volume III for MET elements related to OPMET based on annual February OPMET monitoring;
  • Progress on the implementation of Regional OPMET Centre (ROC) Moscow expected to be completed in 2021;
  • Assist ICAO EUR States with the implementation of IWXXM since approximately half the States currently rely on translation services by the EUR Regional OPMET Centres;
  • Review proposed updates related to the EUR OPMET Data Management Handbook (EUR Doc 018) that will provide guidance on the monitoring of IWXXM data, space weather advisory information and tropical cyclone information; and
  • Continue development of Regional OPMET Data Catalogue (RODC) application in order to facilitate ROCs and States on OPMET data exchange by only sending required OPMET data to States removing unnecessary OPMET data exchange.
