The intergovernmental IOC-WMO-UNEP Committee for GOOS (I-GOOS) was initially established by the IOC Executive Council at its twenty-fifth Session (Paris, March 1992) as the IOC Committee for GOOS (resolution EC-XXV.3), to, inter alia, replace the Committee on Ocean Processes and Climate. WMO and UNEP agreed to co-sponsor the Committee in 1993.

5. maintain liaison with related research projects as input to the design of GOOS and to help GOOS respond to research needs;
6. be responsible for the representation of GOOS at meetings of other bodies.
