Pursuant to the Act on Hydrographic Activity (offi cial gazette of the Republic of Croatia “Narodne novine” 68/98), the State Hydrographic Institute was transformed into a public institution named the Hydrographic Institute of the Republic of Croatia (HHI). It has been operating as such since January 5, 2000, performing hydrographic activities of interest for the Republic of Croatia.

According to the law, the Hydrographic Institute of the Republic of Croatia performs science, research, development, and professional activities regarding the safety of navigation on the Adriatic, hydrographic and geodetic surveys of the Adriatic, marine surveys, design and making of navigational charts and nautical publications, oceanology research, research of marine geology, as well as publishing and press activities.

The Institute is authorised for the development of navigation safety service in the Adriatic, in line with the recommendations of the following institutions:

- International Hydrographic Organisation (IHO)

- International Association of Marine Aids to Navigation and Lighthouse Authorities (IALA)
and in cooperation with the Ministry of Maritime Affairs, Transport and Infrastructure, Croatian Navy, Harbourmaster’s Offi ces, Institute for Maintenance of Maritime Routes, and hydrographic institutes of maritime countries world-wide.
